You will feel UA budget cuts

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

When the University of Arizona is ordered to spend $57 million less, the cut resonates throughout the Tucson area.

The elimination of 600 jobs – 400 of which already are vacant – means the state will have at least $2.6 million less income tax revenue.

And every $1 spent by UA and its employees generates an impact of at least $6.70, according to economists.

That means less money will be spent at local restaurants and less spent for purchases of all kinds as employees hunker down and cut back and former employees take lower-paying jobs or leave town in search of work.

UA is the institution that will take the cuts, but we’ll all absorb the impact.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
