Republican leaders not crazy about Jindal's budget plan

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La.  (KNOE 8 News) - Louisiana Republican leaders are balking at Governor Bobby Jindal's proposed budget.

Republican leaders are calling Jindal's budget proposal an elaborate shell game balanced by shaky financing and improper money maneuvers.

Jindal's budget relies on anticipated savings from the privatization of most LSU-run public hospitals, which hasn't happened yet.

Lawmakers are questioning those assumptions and that his plans don't follow constitutional allowances.

Jindal is confident the budget will pass.
