Funding to Penn State, Other Universities Fails in House - Alexa Lewis, Centre County Gazette

As the state House reconvened Jan. 11 for its first voting session of 2016, House Democrats voted to block $578 million in funding to state-related universities until a final budget package moves forward. All five bills that included funding for Penn State, Pitt, Temple and Lincoln, as well as the University of Pennsylvania’s veterinarian school, fell short of the two-thirds majority required for the passage of “non-preferred appropriations.” The funding packages would have increased funding by 5 percent to all these universities, except for Lincoln, which would have seen a 7 percent increase. http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/funding-to-penn-state-other-universities-fails-in-house,1466632/
