Solve the Budget 2018

Everyone in Louisiana thinks they're smart enough to tackle Louisiana's two most prominent jobs: governor and LSU football coach. We can't help you with your playcalling, but if you think you've got what it takes to be governor, check out our Solve The Budget feature at

Solve The Budget is a joint effort between The Advocate and the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at LSU's Manship School. It lets users try to unsnarl Louisiana's stubborn budget problems. As governor for a day, you can raise taxes, cut spending, or both, and after you're done, you'll receive a digital badge designed by our Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Walt Handelsman.
