Bubba-JindalGet ready for “Big Secrets” of the Louisiana 2013-2014 budget maze. Gov. Bobby Jindal says his proposed $24.7 billion budget for next year relies heavily on privatization plans for LSU’s charity hospitals to offset the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Medicaid funding. Jindal says his budget will include “significant savings” in the LSU hospitals by turning many of them over to private management. Jindal says the budget includes minimal cuts to the health department and, with tuition increases, will keep spending flat for colleges. The full proposal and details will be outlined Friday to lawmakers.
