The administration of Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards is still more or less hogtied to previous projections for money flowing into the state's coffers.
For the second week in a row, the Revenue Estimating Conference yesterday stuck to its previous forecast. The move to increase the amount failed to meet the required unanimous agreement by the four-member panel when Republican House Speaker Taylor Barras voted against such a move.
Edwards is looking to add more than $40 million to revenue projections so his administration can move forward providing additional funding for corrections, juvenile justice and sheriffs.
