Gov. Edwards Outlines Fiscally Responsible Approach to Fund Critical State Construction Projects
March 21, 2018
Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement on the release of the Capital Outlay Bill, HB 2, to fund construction projects across the state of Louisiana. With limited funding available due to the looming fiscal cliff, the Edwards’ Administration is seeking to fund smaller projects that have been in the program for years using surplus state funds, rather than the more costly, traditional approach of bonding the projects for 20 years.
