State Rep. Alan Seabaugh talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his support of Rep. Cedric Glover's bill, HB 885, which would ensure parity funding for the Louisiana's safety net hospitals.

Seabaugh tells KEEL listeners, "I don't say this very often, but I agree with Cedric Glover on this one.It's an idea that's been a long time coming and probably should have been done a long time ago." He adds that "the state of Louisiana fully funds and treats...the hospital and medical school in New Orleans considerably better than they do the one in Shreveport. What (Glover) is trying to do is come up with some objective formula...to have a funding mechanism that actually relates to the number of patients they that treat."
