There's good and bad news when it comes to Washington State University and its budget woes. The bad news: the State House is proposing a $9.34 million cut to the school's budget. The good news: it's far less than the $26 million the Governor proposed in November.
WSU President Elson S. Floyd says it's sign the State is working to make things easier for his students.
"The budget from the House indicates a willingness by the legislature to slow the decline in higher education funding, which has had a dramatic impact on our students," said WSU President Elson S. Floyd. "We appreciate these efforts given the massive cuts higher education has had to endure these past four years." /WSU News
WSU has been dealing with massive cuts in recent years. Since 2007, its state appropriation has been reduced by 52 percent.
