Jindal said he supports the proposal by Louisiana State University for a 424-bed hospital in the Mid-City area. However, he told reporters on Monday that the current business plan is too vague about how the hospital would generate sufficient revenue for debt service on revenue bonds that would finance much of the $1.2 billion project.
