A budget cut for Indiana’s public universities could be on the way.
Gov. Mike Pence’s budget director told members of the State Budget Committee Thursday that tax collections actually fell between 2013 and 2014.
State officials say that unless the state meets expectations for 2015, universities will have to cut roughly $27.5 million or about 2%.
Officials point out that even with this cut if it is implemented, schools will still see a net increase in funds as part of the current budget.
