By JAMES M. ODATO, Capitol bureau First published in print: Wednesday, July 8, 2009 ALBANY -- It didn't take long for the new State University of New York Chancellor Nancy Zimpher to get under a lawmaker's skin.
First published in print: Sunday, July 12, 2009 As the State University of New York copes with two years of state funding cuts totaling $334 million, state Sen. Toby Stavisky raises a question worth asking: Why, at a time when SUNY has $450 million in cash, has it apparently rebuffed the Paterson administration's proposal to tap some of that money to offset those budget cuts? It turns out that SUNY has some answers to those questions. But the official word from Chancellor Nancy Zimpher's office is that she won't discuss the matter in public.
