Bayou to Beltway: April 7, 2021

Apr 7, 2021

Louisiana Budget Project Policy Director Ms. Stacey Roussel on Bayou to Beltway today (Wed) at 12:30 88.7 fm

Ms. Stacey Roussel joins the conversation today to talk about the upcoming legislative session starting April 12. The focus is on the state budget, the tax system, and incoming money from Biden's American Rescue Act Plan. We ask what can be done to make life better for the 1 in 5 Louisiana citizens contending with poverty. Are there smart investments that would make life better in the Bayou state? Ms. Roussel and I discuss ways to target those most in need of help, while making sure long term benefits are considered as well.
