Statement from University of Nebraska President Ted Carter on the Legislature’s approval of the mid-biennium budget bill:
"On behalf of the University of Nebraska, I thank the Legislature for its strong statement of support for the critical value of higher education. The Legislature’s action today will help keep a University education affordable for our 51,000 students and their families. Furthermore, the investments in scholarships for high-need areas and innovative water research will expand access and economic growth in our state for generations to come. I’m grateful to Senators John Stinner and Kate Bolz for their leadership on these two initiatives, and to the Appropriations Committee for its thoughtful work in advancing a budget package that’s good for the future of Nebraska."
