Blake, Peter A.; And Others
Actions of the 1985 Virginia Assembly that affected higher education are summarized. Information is included on amendments to 1984-1986 appropriations for operating expenses in all programs, and appropriations for capital outlay. The General Assembly was presented an amended executive budget for 1984-1986 that proposed to reduce higher education's total general fund for educational and general programs. The legislature restored 363.1 of the 611.7 positions removed by the executive amendments, and increased the educational and general budgets of the institutions $7.0 million over the original appropriation for 1984-1986. Additions to the revised educational and general appropriation included $5.8 million for equipment and computing resources, $.5 million for improvement of position guidelines, and $3.8 million for major new initiatives and programs. Legislative amendments to the 1984-1986 capital outlay budget resulted in supplemental funds for six projects and construction funds for 14 new projects. Bills concerning college admissions and student financial aid were among those considered. Tables show amended distribution of appropriations for capital outlay for 1984-1986 by fund source and function. (SW)
