Republican State Representative Rob Shadoin of Ruston is calling it quits after seven years in the Louisiana House. Shadoin is leaving to join the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in a legal capacity. He says 10 legislative sessions since 2016 were too much for his private practice to bear.
"It's hard to maintain a sole practice when you are gone 50% of the time," said Shadoin.

|The House is set to try again today on passing tax proposals that will go towards closing a one-billion dollar budget deficit. A sales tax bill that would generate 300-million dollars annually was soundly defeated on Wednesday, but House Speaker Taylor Barras says that measure is still a critical part of addressing the fiscal cliff.|
"And the core to the dollars that are important to solving as much as this deficit as we can."
