Great Advice Given to Gov. Jindal
Four former Louisiana governors appealed to Gov. Bobby Jindal to preserve higher education as much as possible. Gov. Jindal committed not to cut state appropriations by more than 10%. Higher education is currently bracing for a 15% cut to state appropriations amounting to $219 million, of which LSU’s share is $32 million. These figures exclude the mid-year budget cut and required costs not anticipated to be picked up by the government.
