Jindal tells New Orleans officials he backs hospital
New Orleans Times-Picayune, April 9, 2009
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave private assurances to New Orleans City Council members that he still backs the proposal to build a $1.2 billion state teaching hospital in the city, despite a growing collection of individuals and organizations asking both the council and the governor to reassess the plans. "The governor's position has not changed," said state Health Secretary Alan Levine. "Our focus has to continue to be on developing America's newest and best research and teaching hospital."
