MSU Board of Regents Discussing University's Budget

The Midwestern State University board of regents met to discuss the university's budget. 

Texas faces a budget shortfall of at least $15 billion and early budget drafts would slash more than $700 million in state money for higher education.

MSU President Doctor Jesse Rogers said the university is making progress on the cut backs and have a framework in place for planning the budget. The board of regents also discussed tuition fees. Rogers said he doesn't want to put any more burden on the students.

Doctor Rogers is recommending not to do anything until the Texas legislature figures out what they're going to do with the budget shortfall. Doctor Rogers also said he's going to wait and see what how other universities deal with their budget.
