State lawmakers are restarting their regular legislative session today.

Officials are expected to discuss new budget troubles, along with what bills should take priority and some think they shouldn't return at all.

Republicans were angered by Governor John Bel Edwards' decision to extend Louisiana's stay-at-home order and are ready to return for the final four weeks of the session, while Democrats say its unsafe.

Legislators say they plan to craft a budget, work on virus response legislation and assist with the economic recovery.
