BATON ROUGE — Louisiana lawmakers worked Sunday through a pile of bills awaiting final compromises before their annual session wraps up, agreeing to delay the effects of the state’s shift to Common Core education standards and to add new privacy protections for public school student data.

As the three-month session heads into its final day, the state’s multibillion-dollar construction budget needs to be finished, and this year’s budget needs to be rebalanced to fill holes in education and prison funding.

The Legislature must end its work by 6 p.m. Monday.
