UW hopes to avoid layoffs, recommends fee increases in 2017 - Joel Funk, Laramie Boomerang

Costs to students could increase and jobs could potentially be at risk at the University of Wyoming in its second year of budget cuts. Continued low energy prices driving down government revenue resulted in a drop in state block grant funding to the tune of almost $41 million through the last year. In addition to the $19.3 million in reductions already implemented in the current fiscal year — carrying through the biennium and beyond — the new plan would result in approximately $10 million more in permanent reductions. http://wyomingbusinessreport.com/uw-hopes-to-avoid-layoffs-recommends-fee-increases-in-2017/
