The Cenla Chamber hosts a legislative appreciation luncheon for our local lawmakers, who say it was the toughest session since the 80’s.
The luncheon offers an opportunity for Chamber members to thank legislators for their leadership and support of Chamber initiatives. It also gives our legislators a chance to discuss outcomes of the 2015 legislative session and answer questions the public may have.
The legislators we spoke with today seemed pleased with how the session turned out.
However, State Treasurer John Kennedy says the budget is being held together with duct tape and is only balanced on paper. Kennedy is predicting budget cuts by December.
