Good budget news for the state has been hard to find, but we finally found some. Governor John Bel Edwards says the state ended up with a 143-million dollar surplus for the fiscal year that ended June 30th. Edwards says it's a sign Louisiana's economy is improving. 
 
"We've been disciplined, we've worked extremely hard, and so the revenue is finally exceeding slightly the revenue forecasts," Edwards said.
