CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A subcommittee of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Four Year Higher Education has developed a funding plan to help the state’s smaller colleges and universities.
The Finance Subcommittee met via conference call Monday afternoon to discuss a plan that would spread out $10 million among seven colleges and universities.
If the proposal is approved by the full commission and signed off on by the governor, $10 million would come from the governor’s contingency fund for the remainder of the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The legislature would need to budget $10 million when it approves the 2019-2020 fiscal year budget during the 2019 legislative session.
