Ridgewater loses $443K courtesy of Minnesota's budget cuts
WILLMAR -- Ridgewater College is losing $443,000 from its budget, due to Gov. Tim Pawlenty's unallotment of funds for state agencies.
The $443,000 is about 2.73 percent of the college's base allotment for this school year, which is already half over.
Pawlenty announced last week that he would be cutting $20 million from the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, part of a plan to deal with a state budget deficit of $426 million.
