State Set for Over $50M in Budget Cuts


BIG BUDGET CUTS ARE PLANNED FOR MULTIPLE STATE AGENCIES AS PART OF A PROPOSAL TO BALANCE THE BUDGET.  

SENATE REPUBLICANS PASSED A MEASURE OUT OF THE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE YESTERDAY THAT WOULD CUT 52-MILLION-DOLLARS OVERALL IN THIS FISCAL YEAR. 

THAT INCLUDES 19-MILLION-DOLLARS IN CUTS TO IOWA, IOWA STATE, AND NORTHERN IOWA WHILE COMMUNITY COLLEGES WOULD TAKE A BUDGET HIT OF MORE THAN FIVE-MILLION-DOLLARS.  

THE BUDGET CUTS COULD ALSO TAKE AWAY ALMOST TEN-MILLION-DOLLARS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES.
