During a news conference Wednesday several Democratic State Senators pushed for a measure to release $168 million for Monetary Award Program grants schools credited for the fall semester. But the governor’s office says appropriating hundreds of millions of dollars for MAP or general higher education without finding offsets could trigger a cash flow crisis. Democratic Senator Pat McGuire says his proposal does not include any offsets to cover the costs. The memo from the governor highlights increased tuition over the span of several years, the use of private jets, golden parachutes for faculty forced to resign, and more areas he thinks could be reformed.
