u of m budget protesters University Budget Cutting Not Popular

University of Minnesota Regents are considering several budget cuts.

Proposals include fewer faculty members alongside some pay cuts and fewer class offerings.   University President Robert Bruinicks says the decisions are painful.   But several students and faculty members are protesting saying top administrators should take pay cuts instead of raising tuition by an estimated 7 and a half percent.    Protesters held a news conference Monday before a public forum on the budget began.   The Regents take a final budget vote June 22nd.
