University of Alaska regents prepare for budget cuts - The Associated Press

University of Alaska officials are working to prioritize programs as they face another round of cuts outlined in Gov. Bill Walker's budget plan. The statewide university system would receive about $330 million for fiscal year 2017 under Walker's plan released Wednesday, reported the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner ( ). The new figure would reduce university funding by more than $15.7 million, or 4.6 percent, from the previous year. Pat Pitney, Walker's budget director, told UA President Jim Johnsen and the board of regents about the "bold" plan that includes funding reductions.
