Jindal renews commitment to local issues
Despite the budget shortfall the state is facing, it seems Jindal wants to protect Louisiana’s education systems as much as possible. Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University are in the process of trimming millions from their budgets this fiscal year, with additional cuts looming on the horizon for 2009-10. Hopefully, adjustments can be made at the universities to account for the belt-tightening without major disruptions to construction, upgrades or student services.
Jindal also renewed his commitment to the Even Start family literacy program on Friday.
