Louisiana State University has been hurt by a loss of $45 million in state aid over the last two years, LSU provost Jack Hamilton said this week, but additional cuts could cause longer-lasting damage.

Gov. Bobby Jindal last year said that higher education could expect a 32% reduction in state aid in fiscal 2012, but has since lowered the target to a 10% cut. The state is expecting a $1.2 billion revenue shortfall in fiscal 2012.
