Q&A with Council On Post-Secondary Education President Bob King
By Chad Lampe
Murray, KY – Government funding for state universities in Kentucky has declined the last two budget cycles. Now, at the start of a 60-day budget session in Frankfort, and with Governor Steve Beshear telling agencies to brace for deep cuts, Kentucky's governing council for state universities wants a significant increase. Council on Post-Secondary Education President Bob King sheds light on this request, and talks about the possibility of the private University of Pikeville joining the ranks of public universities.
Chad Lampe speaks with Bob King about the 2012 budget request, performance based funding, a multi-biennial capital projects budget and University of Pikeville lobbying to join the ranks of public universities.
