State budget cuts affect Arizona schools, local governments - RYAN VAN VELZER, Associated Press

The state clipped about $100 million from the Arizona's three public universities and eliminated funding for community colleges in Pima and Maricopa counties. The result has been university tuition hikes between 3 and 6 percent. Northern Arizona University has eliminated 60 staff positions, cut travel budgets, restructured debt and halted construction on an engineering lab despite growth in the field, said Tom Bauer, spokesman for NAU. Arizona State University plans to offset some of the costs with a one-time fee of $320 per student, in addition to tuition increases.
