Tuition Hike Forecast for UF
A perfect storm is brewing in Tallahassee said University of Florida President Bernie Machen. A storm of budget cuts that could soon blow a cold wind across North Central Florida. Thursday afternoon, Machen spoke with UF's Board of Trustees about Governor Rick Scott's proposed budget cuts. Machen said an increase in tuition is the only revenue stream the school can tap and that any cuts could have a spillover effect.
"You look at the fact that economically compared to the rest of Florida we are better off...that's because of the university and the economic factors that it brings to the table. If the university has to take budget reductions it will ultimately impact the whole county," said Machen.
