Kentucky’s public universities might get flexibility to spread mandated budget cuts over 30 months and could win approval for construction projects in the two-year state budget under review by lawmakers.
What a sweet deal! We get to extend the bleeding an extra six months AND build more stuff which we will then be unable to afford the maintenance on. Will any university stakeholders buy into this nonsense? I sure hope not. Let’s start with making the pension fund viable and also increasing funding for student grants and scholarships and providing state offsets as we lower tuition.
