Alaska Regents, Governor Reach Agreement on Budget

Governor Michael Dunleavy (R-AK), whose June 2019 veto of state appropriations for the University of Alaska system would have resulted in a more than $130 million decrease, reached an agreement with the Alaska Board of Regents that would reduce the system's budget by a smaller percentage. From Inside Higher Education: "Under the agreement, the university system will see its state allocation for the 2020 fiscal year that began July 1 cut by $25 million, with another $45 million total sliced from the state allocation over the two years that follow... The president [of the University of Alaska system] said that furloughs would no longer be needed, but that travel restrictions and some administrative restructuring -- starting with a consolidation of the various institutions' human resources functions -- would proceed."
