BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — As the Budget continues to sit in the hands of state Senators the Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee will take a look at several tax credits and exemptions. The budget that was given to Senators tightened up and got rid of several tax exemptions in an attempt to generate more revenue for the state. One of the largest industries affected was the film industry.
Health Care continues to be a topic on the minds of many. Resolutions on both the House and Senate side that urge de-funding of Planned Parenthood clinics across the state are up for debate and discussion again in Committee. Planned Parenthood officials have called these moves ‘purely political’ in nature.
