Higher Education Budget Woes

January 27, 2009

Lawmakers will likely be in a grim mood at the state capitol this week. Tuesday, the Governor's office is slated to reveal its 2009-2010 budget to the legislature's Joint Budget Committee. The state's higher education system is bracing for the worst. Thirty million dollars has already been cut from this year's budget. As KUNC's Kirk Siegler reports, most campus officials expect the next round to go even deeper.
