Geology may be saved along with much of higher education

The house has agreed to budget negotiations and have sliced nearly 80% of their proposed cuts to higher education. The total of the cuts is thought to be $120 million so for UF that's about a 30-40 million cut. Much of that will be made up via tuition increases such that we may be safe. Having said that, the budget is not finalized until the governor signs it, but it's a move in the right direction. The details have not been released nor have any agreements been signed. We'll have to wait, but I consider this some progress.

I really liked this comment:

$110 million in cuts to universities, which should be covered by $125 million from tuition increases;

Starting at 8am this morning, the committee on higher education funding will hash out what university gets what.

Stay tuned!
