The University of Minnesota Morris held its annual legislative breakfast yesterday, laying out its funding priorities for this legislative session. UMM Vice Chancellor for Finance and Facilities Bryan Herrmann explained on the KMRS Community Connection that the University system is making two financial requests: $87 million for the biennial budget to support the workings of the campuses and to keep the cost of tuition down; and over $200 million in Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement funding for more nuts and bolts infrastructure issues.

Part of that accessibility, Herrmann noted, is getting elevators in more campus buildings. He said it was too early to tell how the legislature will respond to the U’s funding requests.
