The Senate budget was recently released and it cut funding for $4.1 million dollars of State Need Grant which means that an additional 1100 students may have their state need grant cut! In addition, they are cutting a total of $10 million from higher education. The $3.9 million general cut would be spread out among all the state colleges and CTC’s from their operating budget funds. Although the cuts to each campus is relatively low but they are still cuts. The Senate wants the colleges to make up the lost funding from the funds they get from tuition.
