Governor Edwards makes his case to legislators on using the rainy day fund
Posted on 2/13/2017 8:14:00 PM.
On the opening night of the special session, Governor John Bel Edwards laid out his reasons on why the state legislature should use 119-million dollars from the rainy day fund to address a 304-million dollar shortfall. Edwards says without using it, cuts will likely have to be made to higher education, public schools and social services like foster care.
 
"This is the most justified use of using the Rainy Day fund in my decade of public service," Edwards said.
