Ways and Means budget cuts funding increase for Framingham State U - Scott O'Connell, Daily News

Framingham State University students could face a costly fee increase next year, if the House Ways and Means budget’s lower-than-expected allocation for the school sticks. But advocates for the state’s public higher education system, which on the whole received less than they had hoped for, pledged to work with lawmakers to try to boost funding in the final House budget. The approximately $26 million budget line for Framingham State in the Ways and Means Committee’s plan, which was unveiled this past Wednesday, is below the amount proposed by Gov. Charlie Baker in his budget, and around $3 million under the level the university says it would need to keep tuition and fees at the current level next school year, according to a preliminary budget proposal released by the school's finance department earlier this year.
