For Immediate Release

June 5, 2018

State Treasurer John M. Schroder released the following statement today:

“This is part of the legislative process, and I am confident that lawmakers will work something out before the new fiscal year starts July 1,” said Treasurer Schroder.  “We are coming down to the wire, so I am urging the Governor and the Legislature to come together to put a budget into place. The citizens of Louisiana deserve no less.

“After that comes the hard but necessary work of developing true budget solutions with structural reforms. The Legislature’s passage of the transparency bill provides citizens and government with a valuable tool in working toward true reform, and I look forward to helping implement it.”
