BATON ROUGE–Senator Sharon Hewitt said Wednesday that she is considering proposing legislation to consolidate the state’s four college management boards into a single board.

Hewitt, R-Slidell, appeared before the Louisiana Board of Regents’ Planning, Research, and Performance Committee on Wednesday.

A law that Hewitt sponsored in 2016 required the board to conduct a comprehensive review of the state’s post-secondary education system and make recommendations to optimize it.

As Louisiana faces a billion-dollar budget shortfall, Hewitt is leading an effort to eliminate dedicated funding designations that lock up how much of the state’s money is spent.
