Lincoln University: Withheld funds could lead to layoffs - Sara Bono , KMIZ

According to Lincoln University President Dr. Kevin Rome, the school could face layoffs due to withheld funds. In a letter written to Lincoln University faculty and staff Friday, Dr. Rome said Governor Jay Nixon's decision to withhold a portion of the state's budget due to revenue growth concerns is also affecting $1 million that would have matched the school's federal land-grant funding. Dr. Rome wrote, "The loss of the $1 million, for which we successfully fought hard during this past legislative session, creates a $2 million deficit for the university this year, due to federal match requirements." These developments now have the College of Agriculture, Environmental and Human Sciences projecting seven months salary left in its federal fiscal budget.
