One Acadiana holds Legislative recap

LAFAYETTE — Legislators spent the last couple of months in Baton Rouge, working to fix the state’s budget woes.
After not doing so during the regular legislative session, state lawmakers did pass a budget during a special session that followed.
While that is now in the rearview, for those who attended One Acadiana’s Legislative Session Recap Thursday morning, there is still plenty of work to be done to right Louisiana’s fiscal future.

Billy Broadhurst, adviser to Edwin Edwards, dies

Billy Broadhurst, an adviser to Edwin Edwards and countless other elected officials across the state, has died, according to several people who knew him. He was 77.

Broadhurst was a lawyer who rose to prominence as a political operative working with a wide range of officials and a lobbyist for some of the most powerful interests in the state.

Broadhurst had been actively working on politics up until this past weekend, when he was in New Orleans meeting with officials and potential clients.

Details about Broadhurst's death were not immediately available.
