DeVillier ready to hold the line on spending

When the Louisiana Legislature opens its session Monday, Rep. Phillip DeVillier, District 41, said he is open to any ideas and welcomes others to share “...what can be done to fix our repeated budget problems.”
But DeVillier, of Eunice, said he ready to keep a lid on state spending.
“The first of it is we need to spend the next two years with a standstill budget,” he said Friday.
“What we are operating now is called a continuation budget. It typically adds around 13 percent every year,” he said.

Move on to bring early voting to Eunice

Early voting for the next election involving Eunice voters may be held in Eunice.
Early voting for all of St. Landry Parish now occurs in the registrar of voters office at the courthouse in Opelousas.
Eunice Alderman Dale Soileau said Eunice voters don’t want to go to Opelousas. “They can’t even park at the courthouse,” he said.
Soileau brought up the possibility of having voting machines in Eunice to accommodate early voting a few months ago at a city meeting.
