Clausen cuts own salary

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 - 6:06pm

Higher Education Commissioner Sally Clausen is reducing her salary and refusing her car and housing allowances. In all, it's a $226,000 cut.

The decision comes as Louisiana colleges have cut 250 million dollars in the last year-and-a-half.

Some LSU students applaude the move, but say more needs to be done.

Clausen was set to earn $377,000 this year. After the cut, she will earn about $199,000.
