Organization criticizes Jindal's budget for Louisiana
Written by 

louisiana_capitol_2One Louisiana-based organization not very pleased with Gov. Jindal's budget is the Louisiana Budget Project.

It's director, Jan Moeller, a former capital Bureau reporter, has issued the following statement:            

“This is an unbalanced budget that would kill jobs, raise payroll taxes on hard-working state employees and cut services essential to protecting the middle class and building a strong economy.   

 

“We are disappointed that the budget continues the irresponsible pattern of meeting ongoing needs by raiding state funds set aside for specific purposes. 

“Selling and privatizing state assets to meet the state’s obligations is a short-sighted approach that won’t provide the resources we need to invest in schools, transportation, public safety and other necessities for long-term growth." 

-Louisiana Budget Project Director Jan Moller.

Gov. Jindal submitted the Louisiana budget today and in a statement said, in part, "...we submitted a bold plan to protect higher education funding, give more school choices to families, put our pension system on a more sustainable path, and improve our business climate so that we can continue to make Louisiana the best place in the world to get a great education, pursue a rewarding career, and raise a family.”

Here is the press release from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's office.
