New proposal avoids higher education cuts

A new budget proposal released today in the state Senate avoids general cuts to higher education. You can read the Seattle Times coverage here.

The proposal was released by the coalition of senators that approved an earlier version in the upper chamber two weeks ago. You can find details here.

None of the supplemental operating budget proposals in play include general cuts to higher education at this time. But differences remain in other areas that legislative leaders must negotiate before they can adjourn this special session.
