PCC Proposes Alternative Budget Plans, Including Big Cuts - Vanessa Barchfield, AZPM

After years of declining enrollment and the loss of state funding, Pima Community College is at a crossroads. The school has unveiled three budget scenarios that the Governing Board will vote on in May. "Scenario A is maintaining the status quo, not doing a lot of big, significant budget cuts right now," said David Bea, executive vice chancellor for finance and administration. He said that scenario "limits our ability to reinvest in our facilities and programs." The scenario B would cut operations by $5 million each of the next three years by eliminating a number of programs. "And then the last version is one that really looks like what a business would do," Bea said.
