In case you are not paying attention the signifcance of this press release is that the budget season opens soon with the legislativ session after the 1st of the year. Time to start making you not think. OMG its for the kids aftrerall. Those who administer the college budgets are only motivated to the kids. Not necessarily. None of this mentioned any budget revisions etc. And don't forget that large segments of the student population are out of state students and tuition does not cover the cost of a student's education. Do you suppose any bureaucrat ever goes to the legislature and says we are OK see you next year. Just a few days ago the State Police who are always wanting to enlarge were telling us that could not protect the kids unless they get 80 new troopers. Its the annual money dance and has nothing much to do with quality of govern ment service. How much did your income go up this year?
