Early differences on higher ed spending?

Leaders in the House proposed raising tuition by 8 percent next year at public colleges and universities as part of a budget unveiled Tuesday.

Most universities also expect to seek an additional "differential" tuition of up to 7 percent, said Frank Brogan, chancellor of the state university system.

The House proposal cuts the state's contributions to higher education by more than 6 percent, suggesting another year of budget cuts at the same time tuition rises.

"I think it's absolutely not the time to be cutting any education funding, whether its K-12 or higher education," said Sen. Evelyn Lynn, chair of Senate higher education spending panel.
