This segment from the January 19, 2018, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Andre Moreau’s interview with journalist Greg Hilburn of the USA Today Network. Moreau reports that Governor John Bel Edwards delayed the release of his executive budget due to the winter weather. Hilburn discusses: his expectation that Governor Edwards’ executive budget will include $1 billion in cuts; the ongoing state budget negotiations; and his view that Governor Edwards will call a special session in either February or June to deal with the 2018 fiscal cliff.
