BOG talks looming budget cuts - Corey McDonald, Daily Athenaeum

While WVU is receiving favorable attention for its research, it still faces a crucial challenge as it battles a consecutive year with a large budget shortfall for West Virginia. Rob Alsop, vice president of legal, governmental and entrepreneurial affairs, updated the Board on current legislative activity, noting that the four percent cut of state agencies is still in place and will remain a challenge." Hopefully we won’t receive any additional cuts," Alsop said during the meeting. "There is a lot of support in the legislature for higher education." However, during the faculty senate meeting on Feb. 8, Roy Nutter, the University’s liaison to the state legislature, said there is a possibility of another six percent budget cut to state agencies for this fiscal year.
