The Nation

November 13, 1987

Gov.-elect Buddy Roemer asked a former Oklahoma congressman virtually to take over Louisiana's government by becoming the interim commissioner of administration for lame-duck Gov. Edwin W. Edwards. No final decision has been reached between Roemer, now a congressman, and former Rep. James R. Jones (D-Okla.), but Edwards has agreed to allow a mutually agreeable third party--or Roemer himself--to take over the chief administrative position in state government to stem a budget deficit growing $1 million a day.
