Budget cuts add stress to Iowa State - Jake.Dalbey, Iowa State Dailly

In total, the three Iowa public universities will lose $21.4 million in state appropriations, with Iowa State losing upward of $9 million. As a result, several projects have been put on hold on campus in order to keep the university’s budget in balance. During the February Board of Regents meeting, Iowa State President Steven Leath addressed the cuts and their impact on the university.
