“I was proud to sign a responsible budget that invests heavily in the things that improve the lives of every day Louisianans, including education at every level and infrastructure across the state. This will propel us forward in the coming fiscal year on a strong path to continued success. This is the best budget for higher education in Louisiana’s history, and it includes pay raises for faculty and support staff. Also, this is the fifth and largest K-12 teacher pay raise in Louisiana since I’ve been Governor.”
– John Bel Edwards, on a ridiculous $39 billion budget which is destined to produce a massive fiscal cliff.
