Senator Owen H. Johnson is alarmed at Governor Paterson’s proposed mid-year $114 million cut to all SUNY and CUNY schools. “These cuts are on top of a $146 million 2008-09 State Budget reduction and a shameless raid of $68 million in SUNY tuition revenues which were also raised,” said Senator Johnson. “Considering the growing enrollment and economic benefits the SUNY and CUNY systems provide, they should not be subjected to the type of disproportionate budget cuts being proposed by Governor Paterson.”
