Louisiana House passes bill to block New Orleans hospital land acquisition

New Orleans Times Picayune, June 4, 2009

Critics of the hospital plans cast the bill as a common-sense way to protect private property. But state officials and Louisiana State University executives who run the state's public hospital system warn that it could delay an already lagging project.
