Kentucky's University Presidents Worry Over Budget Cuts - RYLAND BARTON, WKMS

Gov. Matt Bevin said on Tuesday he would issue a 4.5 percent spending cut for the rest of this fiscal year to nearly all state agencies, including state universities. He also proposed cutting spending by 9 percent for the next two years. On Wednesday, the presidents of Kentucky’s flagship universities responded to Bevin’s proposal with concern. In an email to students and faculty, University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto said the school is trying to preserve its teaching, research and service missions despite the cuts.
