Tonight Louisiana lawmakers will convene for their third special session in just one year, as they attempt to resolve a $304 million midyear budget deficit. ULM political science professor Dr. Joshua Stockley says one of the biggest battles will be whether or not to tap into the rainy day fund, and how much.

Republican John Kennedy’s victory in the U.S. Senate race gives the GOP a larger majority in the upper chamber, 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats.
