BUDGET CUTS POISED FOR UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA SYSTEM, LSU AGCENTER - Justin DiCharia Manship, Eunice News

Higher education leaders indicated Tuesday there would be furloughs for the University of Louisiana system and consolidation of LSU AgCenter’s research and extension services, perhaps even terminations, under the newly proposed cuts by Gov. John Bel Edwards. State agencies got the bad news earlier in the day of the governor’s proposed budget reductions starting July 1 to help close at $750 million revenue projected shortfall. The AgCenter will take a $4.7 million cut to its budget, $1.5 million of which is one time money that was not renewed for the next fiscal year. http://eunicetoday.com/local/budget-cuts-poised-university-louisiana-system-lsu-agcenter
