Idaho community college presidents request more state help - Associated Press

Idaho community college officials argue they need more tax dollars to help improve the state's overall college enrollment and graduation rates, but legislative budget writers are facing pressure from the governor's office to keep the funding levels low. Presidents from Idaho's three community colleges presented their budget proposals in front of the Joint Finance Appropriations budget committee on Tuesday. All three stressed that their top priority next fiscal year is to add additional staff and resources focused on enrolling more Idaho high school students in higher education. State community colleges rely on tuition costs, state tax dollars and property taxes to operate.
