LA SPECIAL SESSION-BUDGET PANELS -   Yesterday was Day 1 of the Louisiana Legislature's Special Session but there were no votes made despite having just one week to tackle the pending $1-Billion Dollar-Plus fiscal cliff that happens when the 1-cent sales tax expires at the end of the month.  Instead there were budget panel hearings to go over familiar territory. A move that Chairman Cameron Henry (R-Metairie) defended as he explained to public radio WRKF.

LA SPECIAL SESSION AGAIN -   Perhaps the 7th Time will be a Charm   as  another  special  legislative session officially began  for Louisiana Lawmakers  yesterday afternoon as they gathered in Baton Rouge once again to resolve  a  budget  gap  left  over  from  the previous  special session that ended earlier this month.
