Capitol Access Legislative Update

Joby Richard/LSU Manship School News Service.
The Revenue Estimating Conference met Thursday to gain a firmer grasp on the state budget gap.

As part of a collaboration between WWNO and WRKF in Baton Rouge, we bring you the Capitol Access Recap - a weekly review of what happened in the state Legislature.

This week, Capitol Access reporter Wallis Watkins and editor Jessica Rosgaard review a change to the predicted budget shortfall for next fiscal year, and debate over the death penalty.

Wallis Watkins is a Baton Rouge native. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Philosophy from Louisiana State University in 2013. Soon after, she joined WRKF as an intern and is now reporting on health and health policy for Louisiana's Prescription.
