Governor, House leaders deadlocked on budget


Negotiations over next year?s state operating budget remain very tense in Baton Rouge as leaders of the House and Senate ? along with representatives of the governor?s office ? wrangle over whether, where, and how much to cut state spending after July 1.

According to several sources in the talks, GOP-led House has put forth a proposal that continues to make deep cuts ? a total of more than $154 million compared to the Senate?s proposed budget, and a total of $233 million in cuts to higher education, health care, childcare services and other critical services.?
