A ten-percent across the board cut in higher education funding will make an impact to local universities. Among those who will feel the pinch, according to Representative Mike Bernskoetter are Lincoln University, Linn Technical and the University of Missouri system.
“There’s not many places we can get the money from because there’s so many mandatory spending places that we have to go to,” Bernskoetter said. “There’s very little that we can cut from, and education is one of them.”
Governor Eric Grietens cut 146-million- dollars from the proposed budget this past month.
