BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A calm legislative session has come to a quiet end. Louisiana lawmakers adjourned for the year after passing the state’s budget without objection.

It includes $1,000 teacher pay raises, plus extra money for K-12. It also has another $20 million for early childhood education, as well as small increases for colleges and universities.

About half of the legislature is term-limited. It will convene again to organize after elections.
