KU chancellor: State lawmakers' budget cuts 'significantly challenging the University of Kansas' ability to serve Kansans and society' - David Hudnall, Pitch

In not-altogether shocking news out of Kansas yesterday, budget analysts announced that revenue estimates were being revised downward, and the state will have to find about $400 million over the next few years. Jim Ward, a Democratic House member from Wichita, told KSN: “Where else can they cut? Are they just going to close down and say they’re not going to do higher education anymore? Are we going to stop doing highways altogether? I mean, at some point in time, in order to accomplish those essential services, you’ve got to fund them.” Speaking of higher education: Also yesterday, University of Kansas chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little issued a statement opposing a tuition freeze currently being floated in the Kansas Legislature's budget proceedings.
