The Senate should have their counter-offer on the table for higher education later this morning. The current proposal is tough to fully evaluate even for those who are in the know. Here's a quote regarding the UF Budget
At the University of Florida, officials say they could still lose $30 to $50 million with the new budget.
“Our people are still analyzing what these cuts mean,” said UF spokesman Janine Sikes. “It’s an improvement from where the House was.”
30-50 million is a big range. At the 30 million dollar level, most programs could be salvaged. As you head up to the 50 million range, things get dicier. We'll have to wait and see what the senate does and ultimately how the funds are allocated.
In the meantime, transparency is a bit opaque in these discussions!
