Jindal strips items from next year’s $25B budget
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal removed $4 million slated to expand a program that provides at-home services to the developmentally disabled from next year’s $25.4 billion budget, as part of dozens of line-item vetoes issued Friday.
Many of the vetoes stripped funding that lawmakers had added to the 2013-14 budget for disabled services, including dollars for a family support program, assistive technology services and regional resource centers to help people access services.
