Jindal Calls for Limited Hiring Freeze of State Workers

Governor Bobby Jindal Tuesday afternoon announced he will sign an executive order calling for a limited hiring freeze of state workers.

The governor says there are currently 3,800 job vacancies in state government. Under the limited hiring freeze, anyone applying for a job in state government must have their hiring approved by the Commissioner of Administration.

Governor Jindal says he expects the move to save the state $25 million dollars.
