Louisiana budget more than doubles overnight

We've had several breaking news developments throughout the day, including the revelation late this morning that Louisiana's midyear budget deficit more than doubled overnight. Governor John Bel Edwards addressed the special session this afternoon, putting pressure on legislators to find a fix for Louisiana's budget crisis - and he wasn't pulling any punches. We'll have the details and what happens next at 6. 

Plus, the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has approved new standards that would replace Common Core.

Elio Motors, a company wanting to build a 3-wheeled car in Shreveport, is bringing their tour to the ArkLaTex this weekend to show off a prototype of the autocycle. We'll take you there at 5. 

The weekend looks fantastic! Chief Meteorologist Jeff Castle says enjoy it, because wet and stormy weather returns next week. He'll track the changes coming up on KSLA News 12 at 5 & 6!
