Regents Seek 4 Percent Funding Boost
August 13, 2009, 7:24 AM
The Board of Regents is proposing a 4 percent boost in state funding in its next budget.
It's asking the governor to include nearly $171 million for the higher education system in the budget proposal he'll give to the next Legislature. The governor is not required to follow the recommendation.
Nearly half of the $6.8 million in additional spending over the current budget would be used to expand physics programs and add a doctorate degree to dovetail with underground labs being proposed in Lead.
Regents Executive Director Jack Warner calls it an investment in the state's future.
