Treasurer: Cuts would gut higher ed, cause mass layoffs - Greg Hilburn, The News Star

Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy said a potential $380 million cut to the state's universities "would gut them." "I don't know how they can do it without massive layoffs," Kennedy said Friday morning in a wide ranging interview with The News-Star. University of Louisiana at Monroe President Nick Bruno agreed, saying, "Cuts of that magnitude would be devastating to all of higher education." "Some institutions would have a hard time surviving; others would survive, but be greatly diminished," Bruno said. http://www.wwltv.com/story/news/local/2015/01/26/budget-cuts-education-jindal-kennedy/22338353/
