PA Budget: $333.9 Million Proposed For Penn State

As planned, Governor Ed Rendell announced his budget proposals today for the 2010-2011 fiscal year in the Commonwealth and proposed $333.9 million in appropriations for Penn State.

This is the first of a million steps in the appropriations process for Penn State that must be taken before the university receives its funding. Over the next few months, university officials must meet with state legislators in order to come up with a final spending plan by weighing the university’s costs and needs.

President Graham Spanier plans to go before the House Appropriations Committee on Feb. 23 and the Senate Appropriations Committee on March 3.

After last year’s near-explosive financial dilemma, lets hope that everything gets worked out in an ordered and timely fashion, like a good fire drill.
