LSU board redoing vote on controversial job merger

BATON ROUGE - LSU's governing board is re-voting on its plans to merge the jobs of university system president and flagship campus chancellor.

The Board of Supervisors will reconsider the idea Friday.

The latest vote is designed to address concerns from the attorney general's office that the October decision was a violation of the state's open meetings law by not properly notifying the public that a vote would be taken on the idea.

Also, the language of the resolution has been changed to respond to questions raised by the Georgia-based accrediting agency that reviews the LSU campuses, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which has said a merger needs its approval.

The vote isn't expected to change consolidation plans. A search already has begun for someone who will fill the combined position.
