ATLANTA (AP) The state Board of Regents is trying to figure
out how to cut $136 million from the budget for Georgia's colleges
The regents will meet Wednesday to hammer out a plan for meeting
Gov. Sonny Perdue's statewide budget cuts.
Most state agencies have been asked to plan for at least a 6 percent cut to their budgets as part of a strategy to deal with shortfalls in tax revenue this fiscal year.
College officials say the cuts likely will mean hiring freezes,
layoffs and delays in construction across the state.
