NU asked to cut budget 2.3 percent, other colleges 4 percent - CHRIS DUNKER, Lincoln Journal Star

With most state agencies prepared to absorb a 4 percent budget cut for the remainder of the fiscal year, Gov. Pete Ricketts will ask the University of Nebraska to cut 2.3 percent of its annual budget by June. The governor’s proposal, announced Thursday, calls for $13.3 million to be cut from the university’s $583 million state-aided budget. NU will roll out plans to make additional cuts at the Board of Regents meeting on Jan. 27, Bounds said. In the meantime, university leaders are meeting with groups of faculty, staff and students.The cuts come as the state wrestles with a tax shortfall, Ricketts said in a briefing with reporters Wednesday afternoon.
