Louisiana Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the problems facing the state in 2018, including what Gov. John Bel Edwards calls the impending "fiscal cliff" and ways to deal with our ongoing budget troubles.

Nungesser tells KEEL listeners that his office is facing another 10% budget cut for 2018 and has been cut more than any other. When it comes to rolling over the current one penny temporary state sales tax, Nungesser says that he'd "love to see (the tax) go away," but when it comes to renewal, he adds, "I don't see a way of getting around it."
