FILE - In this Aug. 30, 2013 file photo, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal speaks in Orlando, Fla. Jindal’s administration has depleted a reserve fund to cover state employee and retiree health care costs at such a rapid pace that the legislative auditor and lawmakers are raising red flags. An audit released last past week shows the Office of Group Benefits fund balance, which once neared $500 million, is expected to drop to as little as $56 million by year’s end. Auditors say the administration plan to fix the problem would only slow, but not stop the hemorrhaging of cash. (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack, File)
