    Health care services in Louisiana would shrink, transportation spending would be trimmed and three historic sites would close under Gov. Bobby Jindal's proposal to close a more than $103 million midyear deficit while also adding more stopgap funds into the budget. The Jindal administration released its plan Friday to rebalance the state's $25 billion budget and account for the impact of falling oil prices, giving lawmakers two weeks to sift through the details before voting on the recommendations Feb. 20. To close the gap before the fiscal year ends June 30, the Republican governor wants to add another $43 million in piecemeal financing to the $1.1 billion already in this year's budget and cut state spending by another $61 million.
