LAFAYETTE - Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards will be the featured speaker at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's Fall 2018 Commencement Ceremony.

According to a statement from the university, the general assembly will be held at 11 a.m. on December 14 at the Cajundome. The governor marked the start of a special legislative session in May with an address at UL Lafayette. During his speech, Edwards defended his decision to veto a $28.5 billion state operating budget that contained spending cuts. He told graduates that the budget proposal contained cuts that were "catastrophic" for services.
