Under Governor Eric Greitens' proposed FY19 budget, public universities in Missouri would see a 10 percent decrease in funding.  Missouri State University President Clif Smart said that would mean a reduction of $8,668,000 for the university.  According to Smart, if that reduction is realized, MSU would be receiving $10 million less  than it received in 2001 when the university had 6000 fewer students.
