Governor Jindal issued the following statement today after the Louisiana State Legislature approved HB 1:

"Both the House and Senate did great work on a fiscally responsible budget that is good for the people of Louisiana. The hard work of legislators from both parties and increased revenue projections has produced a balanced budget that invests in our top priorities and protects our reforms. We've made a $69 million investment in K-12 education and protected our historic educations reforms from last session, including the Louisiana Scholarship Program and our changes to teacher tenure--all without raising taxes. We've also rejected the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion that could have cost Louisianians $1.7 billion while forcing almost 200,000 of our citizens off of private insurance. I commend the Legislature for their work, and I look forward to signing HB 1 into law."
