“We didn’t need to create a doomsday budget. Governor Jindal did that for us.”
Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne says even though citizens have been told the sky was falling for the past several years, this time everybody better grab an umbrella.
“These are not cherry-picking the worst possible things to get everybody all in a lather. This is the reality of what we’ll have to deal with.”
Dardenne was blunt with the Baton Rouge Press Club Monday, talking about the cuts DHH will have to take as part of curing the 750-million dollar current budget shortfall.
