Statement from University of Missouri President Elson S. Floyd regarding Gov. Matt Blunt’s recommended budget for Fiscal Year 2006
"I want to commend Gov. Blunt for his support of our public universities and colleges," University of Missouri President Elson S. Floyd said today. "Given the funding problems facing most areas of state government, a flat appropriation is good news for public higher education."
"We appreciate Gov. Blunt’s recognition of the important role that higher education plays in Missouri's economy. We stand ready to work with the governor and lawmakers to educate a workforce prepared to support Missouri's future business and industry."
