LSU To Consider Furloughs

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The head of the LSU System says campuses

may have to resort to widespread furloughs to make the additional

budget cuts they could face this year.

The Jindal administration asked Louisiana's public colleges and

state agencies to develop plans for more cuts in the current fiscal

year that ends June 30, because of a drop in state tax income.

The LSU System was asked to devise recommendations for losing as

much as $34 million. System President John Lombardi submitted a

plan that would include days off without pay for faculty and staff

at most campuses including the main campus in Baton Rouge.

But Lombardi recommendation included opposition to the idea,

calling the furloughs "destructive."
