Kentucky Governor Bevin orders college, university budgets cut by 4.5 percent - Adam Beam, Associated Press

As Kentucky inches toward a budget crisis over college funding, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin on Thursday ordered immediate 4.5 percent cuts for all public colleges and universities. In a letter to Finance Secretary William Landrum and Budget Director John Chilton, Bevin ordered the allotments for Kentucky's eight public universities and its community and technical college system to be reduced by 4.5 percent "before the close of business" Thursday. The cuts would impact state funding for the colleges and universities in the current budget year that ends June 30.
