Kaine chops $23 million from UVA
Governor Tim Kaine's proposed cuts in the face of a nearly $3-billion state budget shortfall slice another $12.4 million from UVA, bringing the total to $23 million less the university can expect for the 2009 fiscal year. Staffing makes up two-thirds of UVA's operating budget. "We don't have layoffs in our plan," said Leonard Sandridge, UVA's chief operating officer in a conference call with reporters. "But we don't know what the next six months will bring."
