There will be no major budget cuts when Louisiana's new spending plan takes effect July 1st.

State lawmakers gave final approval yesterday to the $29 billion budget after giving a thumbs-up to extending part of an expiring one-percent sales tax.

The state's new sales tax will total 4.45% compared to the five cents on the dollar paid now.
