Gov. Jay Nixon Wednesday reiterated his proposal for $34 million in additional funding for higher education during a stop in Springfield. KSMU’s Scott Harvey reports.
The Governor first made the announcement for the performance-based model during last week’s State of the State Address.
Wednesday morning, he congratulated MSU for achieving all five of its performance criteria, which makes the school eligible for an additional $4.3 percent in funding, or $3.3 million.
