Jindal touts privatizing as solution to La. Woes

Governor Bobby Jindal opened the first meeting of Louisiana's Commission on Streamlining Government by telling its members he wants them to search throughout government for ways to improve efficiency.

Jindal mentioned privatization several times as a way to cut costs. The overarching goal is to help the state grapple with huge budget shortfalls.

In a rare visit to a legislative committee room, Jindal addressed the commission that he wanted created. The governor made it clear how he thinks state government can be streamlined: Privatize some state services.
