Tax Extension Deadlock In Legislature

Louisiana State Capitol Building

There's still no agreement in the Louisiana Legislature on how to plug a more than $500 million shortfall in the 2018-2019 fiscal year budget.

The House Thursday voted down a Democrat proposal to extend half of an expiring one-percent sales tax and Democrats appear adamantly against a Republican proposal to limit the tax extension to point-four-percent.

The debate continues today in the House with a Wednesday deadline looming to end the special session.
