UW Trustees Could Be Looking At 8 Percent Cuts

uwyo.edu

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is scheduled to hear a presentation on possible budget cuts for next year.

Falling energy revenues prompted Gov. Matt Mead to order state agencies to prepare for 8-percent budget cuts in the fiscal year that starts July 2013. That cut is twice what the Wyoming Legislature had directed state agencies to prepare for earlier this year.

The report on the governor’s request is scheduled to be heard Thursday afternoon during the UW trustees meeting in Laramie.

Trustees are also scheduled to hear about plans for renovating and expanding UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science facility. The project could cost up to $100 million and would be the most expensive construction project ever undertaken at the state’s only four-year public university.
