END OF SPECIAL SESSION: HIGHER ED AND TOPS CUT
“This outcome is beyond disappointing. Tonight our state defaulted on the promise of TOPS earned by tens of thousands of students. Additionally, our higher education enterprise—already ranked last in the nation in per-student funding—will receive an approximate $96 million cut. I’m hopeful a compromise is in the near future, one that prioritizes education. For your future. For our future.
