New Maintenance of Effort Bill Introduced
The first round of Excelsior Scholarship recipients will start school in the fall, but some groups say there are more funding issues to be addressed at SUNY and CUNY schools. So again, they are pushing for a new Maintenance of Effort bill that would require the state to cover any increases in mandates costs for campuses. The legislature passed a similar bill last year only to see if vetoed by Governor Cuomo. Barbara Bowen, from the CUNY faculty union Professional Staff Congress and Assemblywoman Deborah Glick join us to discuss.
