    What's wrong with this picture?

    This is from an article in today's DM Register concerning next year's higher education budget that the legislature has finally agreed upon.

    KEY POINTS: Iowa’s three Regents universities will receive $23 million in additional funding over the current year, including $18.5 million for their general operations. The University of Iowa will receive a $6.6 million boost, while Iowa State will receive an additional $5.2 million and the University of Northern Iowa will receive $6.3 million.

    (Total speculation follows)

    Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Iowa's medical program has very high costs. Additionally, UNI has the biggest budgetary issues of all three schools. ISU is the school that needs the money the least.

    I'm not really worried about it. Any increase in state funding is good at this point.

    Nothing, just more fuel to the fire for the conspiracy theorists.

    Didn't ISU just have another record breaking enrollment increase? More tuition income = less need for state funding.
