Baton Rouge -- Louisiana lawmakers got their first look at Governor Bobby Jindal's 25 billion dollar budget proposal.

The budget includes increased spending on colleges, public schools and disabled services.

The spending plan is $624 million smaller than this year’s budget, but the state general fund revenue is growing.

The proposal does call for the elimination of more than 1,000 state jobs, but many of those are currently vacant.
