Senate Proposes 1.8 Percent Increase for NMU

The Michigan Senate's proposal for higher education funding approved last week calls for a 1.8 percent increase for most public universities, which would mean an $811,000 boost for NMU. The Senate bill rewards schools that typically lag behind in average appropriation per student Central, Grand Valley, Oakland and Saginaw Valley with increases ranging from 2.2 to 7 percent.

NMU was also pegged to receive a 1.8 percent increase in Gov. Jennifer Granholm's FY2007 executive budget. Two-thirds of the legislative process is now complete. The next step will be the House bill. NMU President Les Wong is scheduled to testify before the House on April 26.
