BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33)--The Louisiana Flagship Coalition unveiled its long term plans Monday morning.
The 25-member group wants the University to have greater control on tuition and fee increases. It also wants the state to treat it less like a government agency and more like a student-focused institution.
The LFC plans to draft legislation and lobby for their plan at the capitol.
"We don't know what the size of the hole is," says Sean Reilly. "But when the time comes in the spring to fill it, given all the other things we've pulled together, we're hopeful that the legislator will say you know what this is the right thing to do."
The LFC's plan would save an estimated $85 million in the first five years.
