State System Leaders Support 2016-17 Funding Request, Appear before House, Senate, Appropriations Committees

Drew Johnson, a senior majoring in communication studies and president of ESU’s Student Senate, joined Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education Chancellor Frank T. Brogan and other System leaders today and urged members of both the House and Senate appropriations committees to support increased funding for the state-owned universities as they consider the proposed 2016-17 Commonwealth budget.

The State System has requested a 2016-17 state appropriation of $521.2 million, which would represent an approximately $87.8 million increase over the level recommended in this year’s still-unfinished budget.

The System is facing at least $41 million in mandatory cost increases next year, and also is seeking an additional nearly $47 million from the state to invest in student support services and new academic programs, such as those in the high-demand STEM and healthcare fields; online learning; and other initiatives important to strengthening Pennsylvania’s economy.
