Update on the state senate budget

University of Washington

Senate Democrats released their budget proposal. For more information check out the Office of Planning and Budgeting blog.

UW President Michael Young released this statement regarding the Senate’s budget proposal:

“The Senate budget proposal released today puts a halt to four years of public disinvestment in higher education. The Senate is to be commended to taking this bold stance. Investing in students and their futures charts a course towards sustainable economic recovery and is the best possible form of securing our economic future. Higher education sets people on the path that provides a lifetime of benefits for themselves, their families, and our communities. The Legislature needs to adopt this budget for higher education.”
