DALLAS — Debate on Louisiana’s budget for fiscal 2013 hit an impasse Thursday as conservative Republicans objected to fellow GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal’s plan to use $268 million of one-time revenue to balance the $25 billion spending plan.

Debate on the measure was halted before it began when 50 members voted against bringing the budget bill to the floor, with 51 in favor. House rules require two-thirds approval before considering budgets that include one-time revenues.
