Louisiana universities all got their state funding cut... but Louisiana-Lafayette is just fine - Nicolas A. Lewis, SB Nation

It would appear from this table that an overwhelming majority of the budget decrease was borne by the Louisiana State University System, as they will see fully 78.4% of the total dollar reduction across all the systems combined. However, it goes further - pretty much all of that is in the form of the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport having their funding reduced from $31 million to $4 million. So basically, in terms of funding LSU's Health Sciences graduate programs were gutted, and all of their other colleges and universities combined will see about $7 million worth of funding reductions. This is certainly not positive, especially for programs that were already underfunded, but the Earth hasn't exactly caved in, either.
