Sen Fred Mills Looks Ahead To Special Session
Governor John Bel Edwards made his call for a special session to deal with budget issues and possibly raise revenue starting on May 22nd. State Senator Fred Mills has been outspoken about the process throughout the first special session and the current regular session. He joined Acadiana's Morning News host Rob Kirkpatrick to explain what comes next.
During a press conference in Baton Rouge, the Governor said in part, “I am not asking the legislature to raise any new revenue, but to maintain a portion of the revenue stream we have in place to ensure health care services for our seniors are restored, higher education, TOPS, and Go Grants are fully funded, and our medical schools can continue to train the next generation of physicians."
