Oh, I see they can still increase tuition - at 3 times the inflation rate! Subsidies make the cost of a college education go up. The cost of getting a education has increased at five time the rate of inflation. The U insists on getting, and gets increased funding every year. None of this has ever been used to keep costs down, rather it's for salaries and benefits, building new buildings which then need to be maintained and need tenured instructors and support staff (all union of course). Then the next year students and parents complain that tuition is too high, so higher ed comes around begging once again for more subsidies....NONE of which is ever used for tuition relief.
This is a Joke. Putting in a "rule" that state funds can not go to Buyouts is just as ridiculous as saying Planned Parenthood recieves No gov't funds for abortions. Its an accounting game, PERIOD. Of course gov't funds will go to buyouts.
What a bunch of ineffective politicians. Look at the fiscal mismanagement at the U...you are giving an alcoholic a bottle of booze. More vote buying and payback to unions by the DFL puppets...
