Louisiana’s House and Senate worked through the weekend, drawing somewhat closer to resolving the budget shortfall, while philosophically they remain at odds. As New Orleans Senator Troy Carter put it last night, “At some point, it becomes just a shell game. I think the people of Louisiana deserve better than that.”
Emergency helicopters were sent to Muddy Bottom ATV Park in Sarepta after several accidents leaving one in critical condition, two in serious condition, and one in stable condition. According to the Webster Parish Sheriff Department, emergency helicopters were sent to the scene five times. There are no reports of alcohol being involved. Since opening in 2014, four fatal accidents have occured at the recreational facility.
“Rainy Day – that’s really all that divides us. It should be the last thing we do, not the first thing we look at.” House leaders made a strategic decision Friday to first hear the budget-cutting bill that uses none of the Rainy Day Fund.
