Governor’s Budge Plan Cuts $11.4M From UW

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming would see its state funding cut by about $11.4 million under Gov. Matt Mead’s budget recommendations.

However, Mead’s proposal would provide money for merit pay raises for UW employees and for one of the largest building projects ever undertaken at the university.

The governor’s recommendations call for a 6 percent reduction for the university in the 2013-14 fiscal year while most other state agencies would see an 8 percent reduction.

But the Associated Press reports that it also advocates for a recurring $2.4 million appropriation for employee pay increases and a one-time, $70 million allocation for College of Engineering and Applied Science facilities.

UW President Tom Buchanan says the university appreciates the governor’s recommendations.
