Ten other potential actions are among the recommendations should the State Legislature approve the proposed cuts that would result in a $2.42 million dollar loss for Georgia Highlands. G-H-S President Dr. Randy Pierce encourages students, faculty and staff to present facts and reason when they contact their legislative representatives.
Dr. Pierce informed faculty and staff at the Floyd County Campus today of the recommendations. He wants members of the Legislative Joint Appropriations committee to know that the $300 million dollar cut to the university system would have a greater impact than they may realize. Dr. Pierce was notified to plan for the cuts with scarcely more than a couple of days to submit them to the board of Reagents by the deadline of Noon Saturday. From there the recommendations will be forwarded to the Joint Appropriations Committee Monday.No action is final until approved by the State Legislature.
