BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. John Bel Edwards has made decisions on every bill from this year's legislative session that reached his desk, signing all but six of them into law.
The Democratic governor's office released his final bill decisions Monday evening, announcing Edwards signed Louisiana's construction budget and a companion financing measure passed June 6 in the final hours of the legislative session.
Before signing the construction budget into law, Edwards stripped $18 million in projects from the legislation with his line-item veto.
