Should Louisiana not be able to pay for the roughly $300 bill for the popular tuition-assistance TOPS program for college students, it appears both the Louisiana governor and legislature could agree upon cross-the-board-cuts, instead of some other device, such as reducing the access to TOPS by the lower ACT scoring students.

John Bel Edwards said today during a news conference that he supports proposals in the House and Senate that would cuts.  
Edwards is expected to reveal his budget for the $750M budget deficit on Tuesday.  
Edwards also said he would seek additional revenue from lawmakers in a special session later this year.  The legislature is currently engaged in a legislative session that is focused upon budget cuts.  No revenue can be raised during this legislative session.
