ATLANTA, Ga. (WXTX)--- The state Board of Regents has approved a $136 million budget cut for the state's 35 colleges and universities this year.
At a meeting this morning, the board accepted the six percent reduction plan.
The cuts are part of a statewide plan to deal with an estimated $1.6 billion budget shortfall.
Some lawmakers worry the deficit could be worse if tax revenues continue to lag.
