Louisiana Universities will suspend classes if budget cut, commissioner says -Julia O'Donoghue, The Times-Picayune

Louisiana's higher education commissioner said all of the state's public colleges and universities will have to suspend classes immediately if the governor and Legislature don't find additional revenue for higher education by June 30. Joseph Rallo said in a letter to Gov. John Bel Edwards budget chief, Jay Dardenne, that the number of staff and faculty that would have to be laid off in the middle of the semester would result in the suspension of classes and a total shutdown of graduation this spring. The letter was sent Thursday (Feb. 11). http://www.nola.com/politics/index.ssf/2016/02/board_of_regents_all_universit.html
