Governor unveils budget that would cut $4 billion

On Wednesday morning, Gov. Gregoire unveiled a budget that would eliminate many services for the poor and also would make dramatic cuts in education funding. Tuition would increase by 22 percent over two years at the UW, WSU and Western Washington University. But even with the cuts, colleges and universities would experience $220 million in cuts.

The governor outlines her proposals in a 40-page document.
