Families of the terminally ill and health care workers are holding a protest of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s plan to shutter the state’s Medicaid hospice program in February.

Supporters of the program, which provides at-home, end-of-life care for people who can’t afford private insurance coverage, scheduled a candlelight vigil Wednesday at the capitol. Jindal made a series of budget cuts in mid-December to help close a nearly $166 million deficit in the current fiscal year. The hospice decision has drawn the strongest complaints from lawmakers, and a Senate committee is considering whether to reject plans to shut down the program.
