Bobby Jindal has a well-earned reputation as one of America’s most successful public sector executives and one of the boldest innovators in the health care and education sectors.

Jindal used his two terms as Governor of Louisiana to rebuild and diversify the state’s economy and financial footing in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Jindal’s agenda included top-to-bottom reformation and privatization of the state-run charity hospital and the state’s healthcare payer systems. Fiscally, Jindal reduced the state budget by 26 percent, reduced the state employee headcount by 30,000 and implemented the largest income tax reduction in state history.

With a bipartisan consensus, Jindal implemented statewide school choice programs and moved the state from the bottom five in ethics laws to the top five, according to independent analysts.

Ashbrook seeks to restore and strengthen the capacities of the American people for constitutional self-government through educational programs for students and teachers.  The Ashbrook Center is the leading national educator in the enduring principles and practice of free government in the United States. #####
