State Budget Cuts Hit Universities - High Plains Public Radio

Eric Greitens had barely been Missouri's governor for a week when he faced a wrenching decision cutting the Show-Me State's budget. The state didn't get as much revenue as expected, leading the Republican governor to cut $68 million to state universities and community colleges for the current budget year. And when Greitens proposed his 2018 fiscal year budget, it included further reductions for higher education. He told reporters that the move was necessary to balance the budget. "Universities, college professors, administrators are going to get less money than the politicians had promised them in the past. And that is one of the places where we're going to have to ask them to tighten their belts so that we can fund our priorities."
