Another nice editorial
By Mary Ann Lindley on the AWOL Board of Governors. Florida higher education system (not just UF and not just Geological Sciences) is facing dreadful cuts and apparently the Board of Governors is taking a wait and see attitude. Not good. It might be good to e-mail or call the BOG. The contact information can be found by following this link.
Miami Herald reports that the House-Senate budget meetings have been delayed because they are so far apart. It gets really stupid if we have to go to an extended session. Basically, an extended legislative session would suck money out of the Florida budget to pay for the legislators to work on (and their staffs---and the lights etc). The house blames their lack of inaction this legislative session on the problems with the indicted former speaker. Just keep calling and telling them to figure this all out by May 1 and don't cut higher education.
