Statement from President Miles on Report of Revenue Estimating Conference

Today’s report of the Revenue Estimating Conference projecting a large decrease in FY 2010 State revenues is undoubtedly discouraging for the Board of Regents and Iowa’s Public Universities and Special Schools.  Any additional budget reductions that may result from today’s estimates would be a significant burden on our institutions.
