Legislator: String tied to stimulus education cash

PHOENIX — A legislative leader says the state may have to undo $160 million in budget cuts to the state university system to qualify for some $800 million of federal stimulus money for education.

House Majority Leader John McComish says expected federal guidelines for the stimulus money apparently will be tighter than previously thought. The Phoenix Republican says the requirements force the state to provide a minimum amount of its own money, and that could be more than previous thought.

McComish says it’s not clear how the issue will be resolved or if the $160 million in university cuts would need to be restored.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
