State Senator Barrow Peacock talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the last minute state budget deal, which allows Governor John Bel Edwards to use $99 million from Louisiana's "rainy day fund" to help balance the state budget.

Senator Peacock explains why he voted against the measure, why the vast majority of fellow Republicans voted for, and if, in combination with cuts to most state agencies, Louisiana's budget crisis has been avoided, both short and long term.
