Some Texas community colleges face significant budget cuts - KCBD

Some community colleges in Texas are now having to figure out where to trim their budgets after receiving less money from the state. The 2016-17 budget approved by the legislature cut the amount of funding to community colleges by 1.4% according to the Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC). But, not all campuses are impacted equally. Howard College, which has campuses in Lamesa, Big Spring, and San Angelo, stands to lose $1.4-million over the next two years. According to the San Angelo Standard-Times, the school will look at every cost-saving option imaginable. They plan to adopt a budget at the end of August.
