Future meetings to discuss the $1.2 billion state teaching hospital in New Orleans, may be open to the public-- but it's still undecided. The board held a closed-door gathering this week.

New Orleans lawmakers reacted angrily to the closed meeting during which nine of the 11 board  members convened with Gov. Bobby Jindal's legal adviser and deputy chief of staff at a hotel.

Chairman Robert Yarborough says the full board will decide how to interpret the state open-meetings law and the University Medical Center's constitutional documents.

Yarborough says it will be the first item on the board's agenda when it meets Aug. 25. He says he's "leaning" to push that the meetings be public.
