Represented drone DE Ree shard. Special session on on state in but Edmonton AD good morning thank you for joining us good to talk to you again ADU Dylan good to talk to you again. Height so do we have a spending problem. Or wages not take enough money in the. We've been available I mean you know on the massive year. A couple of things there it's that you're out into letting her and it did that mean he took a much to lose the main a jam up on. Cover that that can be reimbursed but it's not been met as the editor. Because Solomon's. Miley is set only goes slowed. So we when you when you say 250 million that's for overtime or emergency housing or something no one. Everything they do it in a back I mean. I think 85% of the people Louisiana affected by both putts so I can't. Exactly how would spit that buy their products and money. Not in my the government senate that would spit on the budget there was an unplanned or not Qaeda and their as we've not yet. No I find it ironic as you'd think that's what the rainy day fund would be four ranked. Why did you know I'm New Orleans are great nineties and bring it on the other guy is that comic it now we can have some compromises that. It listens and admit to spending cuts in the news media aren't meant not quite enough he wants to but again you have to be at to step down. So why Deanna Nolan so it is known as the politics and and you want there to get things for people in your district in and but manager seems like. It gives. You some blankets at downing goes through this budget thing you know I always go back to the movie Dave to when did appear when he was president he's onto the budgeted cycle you really need this now we don't really need that. And it just seems like a common sense could prevail over politics as wouldn't be that difficult wouldn't. It's it would be the Antarctic conferences is not going to. That's the sad part about nobody acts in that it is by it is time to go to the budget like he talked about it. Each page in due to. It is as it did in and out there it goes on Saturday that there is yet we already. In. And it's politics as usual and I think it's change in his not the Obama network. Including at down count probably it would you know the opportunity to do with this problem. If I would've started looking at the budget and and I set about that the gold breeding it. Voted actually look like gay is it is that a big think telephone book look into Angola. It's about three telephone book lively. This it'd. The damage that they came in and and I've been in nine years has been on but the but this year but I'm not good are noted that it's sticking points in particular I just believe. An upgrade a lot like Kennedy did we spend too much money and it's obvious. It's that is that an immediate budget cuts and we have to go to the it's it's everything you know. If you could partnered with a mind to whom you could cut money and where it's reported. It's going into the in the pages it's quote we don't think it's time to do it right. And to leave the good that it that it is announcing. While sue would seem like get there is anybody that does have a firm grasp on to what's where updated pretty well run the roost. Yes rim is there anybody that. Does that have grown. I picked. This governor is very Smart individual announcement by their work that they did forward. You know John I was in that opens things but it did everything that they can't find everything that he is that it you can't have. Which on both sides and both sides have to agree you know that's sort of front. You know I'm I believe we should cut most in the you know he would believe that book and you McNabb might cut. But we acting in the every week taking lessons and that the prominence in detention center at the less. Aren't you so budget is wanna sign and a half billion rosling. Actress but there have been thirty billion and nobody really knows where all of that is going. And I think in administration town and it's not there well abilities and it's his job to know that it is sorted they dissipate programs like these contracts. There's so many thousands contacts that we did not know what they do it. And that fact the fact is we can't do without. Put on the needed and that's a problem. But somebody hasn't noticed somebody's benefiting from it. That sounds like it sounds crazy immediate and it sounds like madness. Eric crazy parties opted. Beaten I tried that for six hit a bad the doses. Iranian contacts inhabitants accessibility. Some I made money off. Your. In. Islam be as far as Louisiana government he says the budget is now thirty billion for hours and 45 billion. To Baton Rouge via taxes and Andy on demand I mean listening and is used in this hypothetical. The budget would pretty quickly sort of 45 billion won. You're done about it that no doubt about it we knew we expect him with I spent no doubt about it. British independent we might think it gives. And to Richmond race and it divided you know indicated that vote vote to do a better job of look into it when he. You know sometimes people call and they say you guys should take a pay cut which. You know might be a symbolic saying gonna know what to remake 161000 years someone. In 191099. Could you premiums written graphic there it's about thirty thousand. The session include. Pretty such you don't do it for the money and that takes. You know lot of month and a half two months he alive plus again American century and Sarah a year and all 100. Much Null and that's my appointees so. Everything. That can be brought up people always bring up foreign aid with the federal budget that's less than 1%. He Allenby is symbolic things aware wears a real meat here I guess of worms and where you're talking begin and talk about real money if you reload and. So we're gonna look at statutory dedication such as farms and then it's 36 the hunted 200 foreign that there and it. Everybody of the piece of that pie in the returning and goes straight down. The cut back and he's remained on that that's what we've proposed city and a pretty. Instead they're dedication they get rid of them you know as some toes but it seems an attitude that contracts if those that they. You roots its. Continued to you for those of us like me that don't know explain what a statute Terry dedication. On at camp but it was it into law and and and rot active abroad in the legislature whether it be 2010 days ago. Thirty years ago when it was in the pillow that you gotta on Saturday at two deaths those things we can change we gave legislator who can vote in general on. That's the visit as a bit of discussion out committed to date period and that it is and that's hopefully we do that. And that's the ring apron that he used it for success. Mom. In terms of does the secretary dedication scan him a couple of examples just like what. And it went quality into an independent public ones and one that's one out of about six able that it problem in America there's. Last public defender right and netspective need him in the and it's sharp right now. And so on questions and now and would it's so many out there and keep taiba. Editing everything the sports foundation that on that if it goes. So wouldn't separate from those who visited these violence and needed them the bot. And the good.
