WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today after the Louisiana Legislature’s special session collapsed in an early sine die:

“I commend House Republicans for saving Louisiana families from Gov. Edwards’ tax increases.  This special session was a missed opportunity for meaningful budget reforms, and the fault lies with Gov. Edwards and Democrats for refusing to fully embrace those basic budget reforms,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “House Republicans worked diligently and sincerely toward a compromise but in the end had to stand on principles of fiscal responsibility.  I commend them for doing so.”
