BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) -- December 7, 2010 - Governor Bobby Jindal is discussing education today with the LSU flagship coalition.
The newly formed coalition to support LSU is modeled after the Blueprint Louisiana group. It consists mostly of successful business leaders statewide who pursued legislation to change how government operates.
