BATON ROUGE, La. — The Latest on Louisiana’s special legislative session (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Tax debates in the Louisiana House again have gotten bogged down in disagreement.

A vote scheduled for Monday on a package of tax bills has been delayed, with continued divides over which tax types should be used to help close a nearly $1 billion budget gap.

House Republicans who are willing to consider taxes are backing a sales tax plan, while Democrats — particularly member of the Black Caucus — want changes to personal income taxes.

Republican House Speaker Taylor Barras said in a floor speech Monday that Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards needs to be “more clear” in what tax approach he wants to take, suggesting the governor needs to help broker a compromise.

The special session called by Edwards must end March 7.

The sales tax proposal advancing in the Louisiana House to help close a nearly $1 billion budget shortfall caused by expiring taxes would repeat the problem three years later. The bill would only enact temporary sales tax changes, causing a new budget gap in 2021.

Several lawmakers say they disagree with creating another self-inflicted financial problem.

Senate President John Alario says enacting a short-term tax change to fill holes “should concern the people of the state.” He says that makes it difficult for colleges, health providers, state agencies and the people who rely on state services to plan for the future.

The bill would temporarily renew one-quarter of an expiring 1 percent sales tax and temporarily eliminate some sales tax breaks. The proposal is scheduled for House debate Monday.
