Montana colleges could face $44 million cut if special session fails

November 10, 2017View for printing

If the Montana Legislature rejects the governor's budget-balancing plan in next week's special session, the University System may face, not a best-case scenario of $4.5 million in cuts, but a worst-case scenario -- the possible loss of $44 million.

That would be "devastating," Montana State University spokesman Tracy Ellig said Thursday.

Instead of focusing on next week's Board of Regents meeting in Bozeman or even the 'Cat-Griz football game, Ellig said, the eyes of MSU leaders are on Helena and what happens when the Legislature meets Tuesday.
