SUNY Seeks to Increase Tuition and Staff

New York Times AP Story

ALBANY, Nov. 28 (AP) — Tuition would increase by about 4 percent at most State University of New York campuses next fall under a budget proposal released Tuesday. Tuition is now $4,350 a year.
The SUNY Board of Trustees approved a request for an additional $239.8 million, or 12 percent, in state spending. The plan totals almost $2.22 billion and calls for hiring more full-time faculty members and $123 million in initiatives.
The proposal for the 2007-8 fiscal year has a long way to go. Governor-elect
Eliot Spitzer will consider the plan in creating his executive budget in January. His proposal will go to the Legislature. The state budget has an April 1 fiscal deadline.
