No veto session

There will be no veto session at the state capitol. Louisiana's senators voted 26-13 against the session, even though advocates for the developmentally disabled were calling for one.
 
Governor Jindal used his line-item veto power to cut six-million dollars in funding to help disabled individuals receive home and community based services. 

A veto session is automatic after every legislative session, unless lawmakers cancel it. It takes a majority vote in either the House or Senate to cancel one. Legislative leaders were pushing against a veto session.
 
Political Analyst Bernie Pinsonat says if lawmakers restored funding to disabled services, cuts would be made elsewhere, upsetting another group of people.
 
There's never been a veto session under the state's current constitution. 
 
 

Tax Incentives
The Legislature is debating the possiblity of changing or eliminting some tax credits for business. How do you feel about that in light of our $1.8 billion dollar budget shortfall?
It's a great idea. It's time for business to pay it's fair share
Some of the incentives are good, but over all, business get's too big a break.
Leave business alone tax credits alone.
