Louisiana Gov. Jindal Issues Statement On LSU Student President's Request To Stay Home
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

After the controversial news concerning the LSU student body president writing an open letter urging Governor Jindal to stay home and not travel for fundraisers, Bayoubuzz's published two columns concerning the controversial incident. 

Shortly afterwards, and right before publishing the Bayoubuzzx newsletter, Bayoubuzz publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky received this statement from the Jindal press office, directed to Sabludowsky:

Here’s a statement from Kyle Plotkin:


“Our Chief of Staff and Policy Director met with this student to discuss higher education funding. It’s great he and other students are getting involved in the political process and we hope they continue to be part of the conversation. We have an open dialogue with the higher education community about the state’s budget challenges and we’re working to mitigate reductions to classrooms. The reality though is that higher education officials are not delivering the value our students deserve. That’s why we’ve encouraged higher education administrative officials to prioritize reductions so that they come mainly from administrative overhead, not teaching and research. 

“In FY 2010, Louisiana ranked ninth in the nation for the amount of state dollars spent on higher education as a percentage of state taxes. So the answer is certainly not to raise taxes on the backs of Louisianians.”

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
