Pretty cool.

Now, how long will it take them to spend it?

I would hope that they save it and lower our taxes, but I doubt that will happen.

I'd say commit it to higher Ed, rainy day fund, and highway rehab funding but we all know that by Christmas it will be adjusted to about $0.95.

Jindal has line item vetoed some weird stuff, but he's allowed some questionable things too. I'm not sure if this is from fiscal restraint or growing tax revenue.

I guess we shouldn't complain either way.

I guess this is the final piece of the puzzle Payush needed for his POTUS bid.

They should give that money back to LSU for the 10-straight years of budget cuts it's had to make, causing it to cut numerous programs and course offerings while increasing the cost of tuition, however we all know the Republitard endgame is to make higher education unaffordable for 80% of the population, so increased state funding to universities isn't exactly in their gameplan.

Apportion it appropriately to the universities according to the percentage of cuts to their budgets endured.

I am praying this is a troll post and not something anyone actually believes.
