BATON ROUGE - Ahead of President Barack Obama's visit to New Orleans, Gov. Bobby Jindal offered suggestions on where the president should change course.

He said Thursday the president should drop his administration's lawsuit against Louisiana's voucher program, agree to repeal his signature health care law and reverse new limits on coal-fired plants.

None of those things seemed likely. And it wasn't clear if Jindal would discuss the ideas with Obama personally.

Jindal said he'll be at the airport to greet the president upon his arrival Friday. He wouldn't say if he will meet privately with Obama.

Jindal didn't list the rising costs of flood insurance as a top issue for Obama to tackle. When questioned about the omission, Jindal said Congress would need to take action to stop the insurance hikes.
