Members of the Appropriations Committee share our goal to grow Nebraska and I appreciate their hard work. We know this is a difficult year and the University of Nebraska is prepared to make necessary cuts. We also have remarkable opportunities to work together to build a strong future for our state. Nebraska’s continued support for its public university even during difficult times will send the right message to the young people who are our future workforce, the private sector partners who have invested so generously, the talented doctors and researchers we want to attract and retain, and the Nebraskans who have depended on an affordable and high-quality university for almost 150 years.
