Legislators and school leaders met back at the capitol Friday to work out a positive solution for the painful budget cuts for higher education. The Louisiana System is facing a more than 200 million dollar budget cut. Many of the state universities have already begun cutting programs and positions. The universities warn if something isn't done to help cover the cuts this session, students could see big changes to university life in the fall.
