Who'll pay, and how much, for Montana's coming budget cuts - Missoula Independent

There's one word in the Montana University System vocabulary that's gone unspoken for most of the last decade: tuition. Tuition hasn't budged at the state's flagship campuses, including the University of Montana, for six of the last 10 years, thanks to a "tuition freeze" policy under which state lawmakers agreed to cover basic cost increases to keep the universities running. The budget bill passed by the House on March 16 cuts university system funding by $6.2 million each of the next two years, a roughly 2.5 percent drop.
