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.”
