Protestors Rally Outside UMC

A rally happened Thursday night outside University Medical Center. Protestors are fighting millions of dollars in proposed cuts to medical care.

A few dozen protestors gathered outside UMC for about an hour and they got a lot of attention. Cars and trucks passing by on Congress honking and yelling in support of their cause. Many of the protestors started speaking out a few weeks ago when they first heard about the cuts. They've been putting pressure on legislatures to find some of the funding so these cuts don't have to happen.

LSU health officials will be holding a meeting in Baton Rouge Friday to unveil the final plan.
