Legislative Budget Deal Would Cut $104M from Universities - Vanessa Barchfield, AZPM

The state’s university system may take a $104 million cut in state funding next fiscal year, about $27 million more than in Gov. Doug Ducey's January budget proposal. Republican leaders and Ducey agreed to the cut from state funding for the state’s three public universities. Ducey's original proposal called for a $77.5 million reduction, proportioned by university enrollment. If the same proportion is kept with the larger cut, the University of Arizona could lose $28 million, Arizona State University $54 million and Northern Arizona University about $22 million.
