Governor Jindal says he is generally pleased with the overall outcome of the 2011 legislative session. The Governor says lawmakers successfully carried out their main task -- delivering a working state budget that deals with a billion dollar revenue shortfall. Several key Jindal legislative agenda items were given final passage by lawmakers, like a Constitutional Amendment to fix the state's so-called Rainy Day Fund, so it can be used effectively when budgets are tight. He says grades-based college scholarships have also been given a better funding source.

Some of Jindal's legislative wish list was denied by lawmakers, though, including the merger of UNO and SUNO, the privatization of three state prisons, a plan to privatize some state worker insurance and others. Jindal says he has no regrets from the session. Jindal says he'll try some of his initiatives again next year.
