This morning the Senate Ways and Means Education Budget Subcommittee voted out its recommendations for the KBOR budget. While we are still very early in the process and much can happen between now and the 90th day, the good news this morning is that the subcommittee recommended adoption of the Governor’s proposed budget with regard to PSU. This means they are recommending to the full Senate Ways and Means Committee that PSU’s budget remain level with a special annual enhancement of $1 million for development and implementation of the new polymer chemistry degree program.
Consideration of the KBOR budget by the House will begin next week. President Scott will testify before the House Appropriations Education Budget Subcommittee next Wednesday February 20th.
