BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - New numbers are out highlighting the failure of the recent special session.

The 15-day special session came with a roughly $640,000 price tag. A good chunk of that cash ends up in the pockets of lawmakers, with about $320,000 going toward per diems and travel expenses.

Political experts already say to expect another special session later this spring.
