Lawmakers look for ways to offset higher ed budget cuts, paper reports

An article in the News Tribune and other newspapers today looks at the pressure building on higher education institutions as a result of proposed cuts in higher education funding in the next biennium.  A spokesman for the University of Washington says tuition would have to rise about 20.5 percent annually over the next two years to offset cuts in the Governor’s proposed 2011-13 biennial budget. A legislative budget proposal could be announced in a few days.
