Republican Budget Rewards ISU and UNI, Cuts UI - JOYCE RUSSELL, Iowa Public Radio

A Republican-dominated committee in the Iowa House has approved a controversial Board of Regents plan to give more money to state universities that attract more Iowa students. It’s called performance-based funding. But the panel approved no money to soften the blow for the University of Iowa.

But House Republicans approved the new distribution with the money for ISU and UNI coming out of the University of Iowa’s budget.
