University of Nebraska caught in budget slugfest - JOANNE YOUNG Lincoln Journal Star

Debate on the 2017-19 budget continued last Thursday morning, and the University of Nebraska got caught in the fight about more cuts. Part of the discord surrounding whether to cut spending in the $8.9 billion budget was whether to make up part of a $55 million revenue decline by lowering of the minimum reserve from 3 percent to 2.5 percent. That would represent $42 million. Stinner told them the committee made nearly $10.8 million in additional cuts. But that left about $39 million to make up. Some dissenting senators want cuts to the budget instead. http://columbustelegram.com/news/state-and-regional/university-of-nebraska-caught-in-budget-slugfest/article_482a12c7-dd19-5c95-b612-1d564a67a206.html
