Governor calls yet another special session to address budget crisis

BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) - Gov. John Bel Edwards has called another special session to address the state's budget crisis.

The session will convene June 18 at 4 p.m. and must end by 6 p.m. June 27.

The governor says during the last special session the Legislature passed a budget that leaves TOPS, higher education and child and family services underfunded. He hopes lawmakers will approve new revenue sources.

This will be the third special session this year.
