Senate budget bill includes deep cuts to school, university funding - Matt Buxton, News Miner

The Senate on Monday rolled out 5 percent cuts to K-12 schools and the University of Alaska. The move cut $69 million from the per-student funding formula for K-12 schools and about $22 million from University of Alaska funding. The University of Alaska cuts were called "devastating" by UA President Jim Johnsen. The university's Board of Regents will hold a special meeting next week to address the situation. http://www.newsminer.com/news/alaska_news/senate-budget-bill-includes-deep-cuts-to-school-university-funding/article_81f5fb8c-1bd3-11e7-be54-d7ad4930406d.html
