Building code passes House
"We voted to send the budget back to conference committee," Rep. Rick Gallot, D-Grambling, said. "There were some issues that needed to be worked out."
One of those issues was the proposed reduction or elimination of the Office of Rural Development on the Governor's staff. Ruston's Ty Bromell heads that department.
"That directly affects those of us in rural parishes and it's something that we don't want to see cut," Gallot said.
