Louisiana Legislature will recess amid coronavirus concerns

BATON ROUGE — Louisiana's Legislature will recess today amid coronavirus concerns until March 30 or March 31, multiple lawmakers confirmed.

"It's the right decision," said House Speaker Pro-tem Tanner Magee, R-Houma.

The recess comes only hours after House Speaker Clay Schexnayder, R-Gonzales, said legislators would "soldier on" with the session.

But pressure to recess continued to mount from health care officials and some lawmakers to shut down.

Schexnayder and Senate President Page Cortez, R-Lafayette, will ask members this afternoon to pass a concurrent resolution suspending the session.

The session must end June 1, so lawmakers will need to return to pass essential legislation like a budget and reauthorizing government agencies.
