Rep. Raymond Crews: Governor ‘Playing A Dangerous Game’ [VIDEO]
State Representative Raymond Crews talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the beginning of another special legislative session and what he thinks the chances are that a compromise can be reached to balance Louisiana's budget.
Referring to this, the sixth special session called by Governor John Bel Edwards, the Bossier rep says, "I think most people would agree that at this point he just wants more revenue. And while I understand that it's a lot easier to do your job if you have more money, a leader has to deal with the resources he has and make the best decisions he can."
Commenting on the governor vetoing a state budget that went to his desk last week, Crews says, "I can't understand this tactic. I can't quite see why that's the road (Edwards) continues to go down.I think he's playing a dangerous game here." Crews adds that the budget that Edwards rejected is "a pretty good idea of what the public wants."
