BATON ROUGE — Louisiana’s legislative session reaches its midpoint Tuesday with no clear direction on what approach lawmakers will take on rewriting state tax laws, if they can reach agreement at all.

Some signs of progress emerged Monday as the House tax committee started advancing proposals for consideration, though without any promise lawmakers on the committee would support the ideas on the House floor.

No bills out of more than 900 filed for consideration have reached the governor’s desk so far, and portions of Gov. John Bel Edwards’ legislative agenda have run into significant opposition, with his main tax bill already jettisoned.
