State lawmakers are pressing higher education leaders for details of the strategies they're using now
to cope with budget cuts expected in 16 months.

Louisiana's college campuses aren't proposed to take cuts in the budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, but that plan relies on $290 million in federal stimulus money.
