Governor Jindal is taking care of business. Governor Jindal has spoken many times about the reduction of the state workforce.

Auditor's Office representative, Nicole Edmonson, says the decrease in state workers from 2005 to 2011 is pretty significant. Edmonson also mentioned that the numbers that the Governor's office and the Auditor's office will have different numbers due to them counting from different dates. Governor Jindal's office started counting from 2008.

She also says that although the number of state workers is decreasing, the amount spent paying them has gone up as well.
