BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Legislators were scheduled to continue budget talks Thursday, but legislators have decided to push that budget debate back until Friday. Representatives are still working out negotiations on HB1 and should start the debate process Friday.
Monday, it was revealed that House Democrats and a group of House Republicans had come together to try and compromise on getting a framework of the budget on to the House floor for debate.
Representatives have been trying to work out an alternative to Governor Bobby Jindal's proposed plan.
