Jindal proposes restoring funding for some programs
BATON ROUGE- Governor Bobby Jindal's administration proposed restoring funding for several programs when the Appropriations Committee takes up next year's budget on Monday.
The proposal includes $700,000 for breast and cervical cancer screenings at LSU hospitals, $1 million toward the Department of Children and Family Service's Family Violence Prevention and Intervention program, $1.1 million for the Office of Elderly Affairs' Senior Rx program, and $1.3 million in additional funding for Louisiana State Police's Concealed Handgun Permit Unit.
The Jindal administration said the money would come from extra funds generated by the Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, and an excess balance in the Medical Assistance Program Fraud Detection Fund.
