State Treasurer John Kennedy will give the Republican responsetonight to Gov. John Bel Edwards' televised address.
Treasurer Kennedy will speak for five minutes, beginning at 6:43:30 p.m., from WVLA-TV in Baton Rouge. Television stations wishing to carry the comments should tune their satellite dishes to SES 3-K23/B.
"I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to offer common sense solutions to the state's budget problems," said Treasurer Kennedy. "It is clear to me that we have a spending problem. We should not burden our hardworking families with higher taxes. When the state is spending $1 million to install statues at LSU Medical Center instead of training doctors, it's clear that our priorities are distorted."
