PAR Newsletter: On the Health Record
Each year state officials make decisions about health and hospital programs to provide essential services to Louisiana’s medically indigent, aged and disabled. More than 30 percent of the state budget is spent on health care. These are arguably the most important public policy decisions that will be made at the state level over the next several decades.
PAR’s research and analysis provide Louisiana citizens and decision-makers with an independent, reliable and knowledgeable resource to evaluate proposed changes. This newsletter series places a spotlight on some of the facts and figures central to the public debate and explored further with in-depth PAR reports available at www.la-par.org.
