Latest budget would deepen higher ed reductions - Andrew Haffner, Grand Forks Herald

In the face of continued budget reductions across the North Dakota University System, UND President Mark Kennedy said he will continue to promote UND while working to accommodate state funding cuts. Gov. Doug Burgum announced his own budget recommendations Monday evening, proposing a total additional reduction of $159 million from Dalrymple's 2017-19 budget. Burgum suggesting reductions to higher education be increased by $31 million, or 5 percent more than those recommended in Dalrymple's budget. Burgum described that earlier budget in a release as a "good starting point," but stated the continued shortfall in state revenue had necessitated greater reductions.
