UM System cuts finalized

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon approved a final version of the state’s higher education budget Wednesday.

Under the budget, funding to the University of Missouri System will be cut by $3.8 million, although this will be offset by a statewide increase in performance-based funds.

The $3.8 million cut marks a compromise between the House and Senate, who pushed for larger and smaller cuts, respectively.
