"Yes, I am trying to run out the clock." - Rep. Alan Seabaugh

June 05, 2018
(Monday, June 4, 2018) - In the final moments of the second special session of 2018, Rep. Alan Seabaugh intentionally ran the clock out in as members were set to consider a measure that would have avoided cuts to higher education, TOPS and other critical state programs. The maneuver is forcing the legislature into another special session at a cost of more than $60,000 per day. A clear majority of legislators supported a bipartisan proposal passed by the Senate that would have resulted in a reduction of the tax burden on the people of Louisiana of $500 million. That plan would also cut $200 million in government spending.
