State budget: College funding fading quickly - Howard Fischer, Capitol Media

Republican legislative leaders and Gov. Doug Ducey have agreed to extract nearly $30 million more from state universities than the governor first proposed. The deal calls for reducing university funding this coming year by nearly $104 million. That compares with his January proposal to slice just $75 million from the $746 million in current state dollars. That also compares with nearly $1.1 billion in state dollars directed toward colleges in 2008. Ducey defended taking more from the universities, saying it was necessary to slash deeper there to ensure a balanced budget. “We have a budget that reflects the values of Arizonans,” he said http://www.trivalleycentral.com/casa_grande_dispatch/arizona_news/state-budget-college-funding-fading-quickly/article_a53cca42-c34e-11e4-8d2a-8b3b7c8496c4.html
