Missouri Gov. Wants to End Aid to Private College Students
March 15, 2010

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon last week proposed ending the eligibility of private college students for various state aid programs, The Columbia Daily Tribune reported. A spokesman said that the savings could amount to $50 million a year. "It’s not that we’re against private colleges in Missouri. There are great private colleges in Missouri. But in this financial situation, it’s a luxury that Missouri taxpayers can no longer afford, in our opinion," said the spokesman. Officials of private colleges said that they were shocked and upset by the proposal.
