La. higher ed board doles out reductions in spending.
Gov. Bobby Jindal has proposed $219 million in college cuts in the fiscal year that begins July 1, as a way to balance a budget hammered by tax cuts, oil and gas revenue drops and the national recession.
The state's top higher education board, the Board of Regents, announced how it expects those cuts to be divvied up among college systems.
Under the plans, which are subject to legislative approval, the LSU System would take the biggest hit: a $102 million cut.
The University of Louisiana System would lose $67 million, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System would be reduced by-$29 million. The Southern University System would be cut nearly $17 million.
