Video duration: 58:20Video has closed captioning.

A big push by Governor Jindal has been the privatization of state government operations which he says will save taxpayer money. To accomplish this, the state has contracted with outside providers for professional, personal and consulting services. Currently, Louisiana has nearly 13,000 active contracts - the majority for $50,000 or more.
