College Officials Pleased Over Return of Millions to Budget

By  | 

Local community college officials are applauding the governor's decision to return $154 million dollars to the budget.

This past summer, Governor Perry originally vetoed an appropriations bill that would have sent to 50 Texas community colleges.

Was based on his belief that college officials lied on state health insurance documents.
On Tuesday, Perry rescinded his veto.

Blinn College President Don Voelter issued the following statement in response to the governor recent decision:

"I am excited to see a successful resolution to the vetoed insurance appropriations and look forward to discussions that will bring a permanent fix to the issue of proportionality. I am anxious to get the numbers and see how Blinn faired dollar wise."

Blinn will find out how much money it will receive in the coming weeks.
