Louisiana legislators have been quietly toiling away for more than a year on an exhaustive review of funds in the state budget that are locked up by law.

"We're doing a deep dive into funds that for the most part haven't been looked at in a very long time," said Sen. Sharon Hewitt, a Slidell Republican and co-chairwoman of the review committee. "It feels like it's an endless list."
