U of I asks departments to cut budgets 2 percent

URBANA, Ill. (AP) — The state’s ongoing budget deadlock has spurred the University of Illinois to ask its departments to cut an average of about 2 percent from their budgets.

Interim Provost John Wilkin’s office sent the budget guidelines this week to the school’s academic units.

Wilkin tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette ( ) that most of Illinois’ universities have budget shortfalls like the one the Urbana campus is facing because of the ongoing state budget deadlock.

Wilkin’s requested cuts are the school’s third consecutive year of budget cuts. The school has operated with $306 million less in state funding than in normal budget times during the past two years combined.

Democrats in the Illinois Senate this week halted consideration of a plan intended to end the Legislature’s two-year budget deadlock with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.
