Governor cuts $329M from LSU hospital network

NECN / Associated Press, July 24, 2012
Louisiana lawmakers bristled Monday about getting few details and no ability to decide the $523 million in budget cuts Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration has made to healthcare programs, largely to LSU's safety net healthcare facilities. The cuts are tied to a drop in Louisiana's federal Medicaid funding that was passed in congressional legislation after the state's 2012-13 budget was already crafted. The Jindal administration levied two-thirds of the cuts on the LSU safety-net hospital system, which will lose $329 million, or one-quarter of its entire budget for the fiscal year that began July 1.
