Senate Committee Decides to Send NAU and ASU a Present

Mar 8, 2012

A Senate panel voted today to give additional cash to two of the state's three universities. 

The $12 million for Arizona State University and $3.3 million for Northern Arizona University would be on top of whatever cash lawmakers and the governor approve for the schools. Senator Steve Yarbrough said the move is designed to address the fact that, the way the budget has been set for years, has resulted in the University of Arizona getting more state cash per student than the other two schools.
