BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — Gov. John Bel Edwards' administration is seeking voters' advice on how to deal with the state's looming budget crisis.

WBRZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1Sc6f0L ) reports the state Monday posted a special web page soliciting comments from Louisiana citizens. The site provides information on Edwards' plan to deal with the budget gap and gives people a place to provide feedback.

For this current fiscal year, there is an estimated $750 million shortfall that must be addressed by June 30. For the next fiscal year, beginning July 1, there is already an estimated $1.9 billion shortfall.

Lawmakers begin a special legislative session to tackle the problem this weekend.
