re: ELI5 this situation because I'm a total idiot when it comes to taxes - LSUFanHouston

re: Louisiana has a current budget of $29 billion. The state is not poor. - LSUFanHouston
[quote]Remember: Louisiana centralizes more of its government and funding at the state level than any other state. A huge chunk of that budget goes to local schools and their employee pensions. Everything in the state is run from, and funded from, Baton Rouge rather than relying on local county taxe...
