Governor Bobby Jindal says his budget cut proposal for next year will be presented to lawmakers with a list of "options."
The state faces a $1.6 billion shortfall for the upcoming fiscal year. The Jindal administration is considering state financing cuts up to $400 million for public colleges, and $300 million to health care services.
Jindal's budget proposal is due to lawmakers at the end of next month.
Jindal says his budget proposal will be paired with "suggested solutions" that could reduce some cuts, but would require legislative approval.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is standing by comments he made to CNN about so-called “no-go” zones in European cities, and the accusation that Muslims immigrating to Western countries refuse to assimilate.
Jindal’s comments came just after Fox News retracted similar comments that pundit Steven Emerson made on air, saying: “In Britain it’s not just no go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.”
