As the legislative session continues, I know there is great interest, both on campus and among Washington State University’s many friends and supporters, in keeping current on the latest developments, especially as they pertain to our 2011-13 biennial budget.
 
Our Budget Office has completed its analysis of the budget released by Senate leadership earlier this week. That is, of course, the third budget proposal of this cycle, following the governor’s budget in December and the House plan earlier this month.
 
For a breakdown of how each of those budgets would affect WSU, I encourage you to visit the Budget Office website at
http://budget.wsu.edu/2011-13_budget/
. There you can find links to an analysis of each budget along with a side-by-side comparison of the budgets to date.
