BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's health secretary, Bruce Greenstein, is resigning amid ongoing state and federal probes into the awarding of a Medicaid contract to a company where Greenstein once worked.

The Jindal administration canceled the nearly $200 million state contract with Maryland-based CNSI last week after details leaked of a federal grand jury subpoena involving the contract award.

The governor's office announced Greenstein's decision Friday. His resignation takes effect May 1. Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin says the governor didn't ask Greenstein to leave.

When the Medicaid contract was awarded two years ago, Greenstein denied any involvement in the selection. But he acknowledged that a change he pushed in the bid solicitation made CNSI eligible.

Greenstein offered no explanation in his resignation letter, instead recounting his accomplishments and thanking the governor.
