  • Iowa Senate Proposes Cuts - $3.7+ million for UNI

    $3.7+ million proposed cut for UNI:

    "Iowa Senate Republicans are proposing $52 million in budget cuts for the current state fiscal year that will hit hardest the budgets at state universities and community colleges, the state's justice system, and human services.

    State officials immediately responded Thursday with dire warnings of negative impacts.

    State Courts Administrator Todd Nuccio issued a statement that said courts in 30 county courthouses across Iowa will be forced to close if the spending reductions become a reality and court personnel will be eliminated statewide. The courts selected for closure will be determined by caseload volume, he said.

    Iowa Board of Regents Executive Director Mark Braun said "severe cuts" of $19 million for Iowa's three state universities will cause disruptions on campuses, because the second semester is already underway."
