December is a month of transition at the Louisiana Budget Project, so the Daily Dime is taking a brief sabbatical. Director Jan Moller will be going on family leave starting today, and the staff will be busy with conferences, workshops and holiday vacation time. So we’re taking a break until the first week of January. We will continue blogging through December and working on projects and reports that will be published next year. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading the Dime in 2013 and look forward to bringing it back in January.
