MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
The state's two year college system hopes to take advantage of increased state revenues. The State Board of Education signed off Thursday on the system's request for a 29% increase in funding from next year's state budget.
The Education Trust Fund has seen increased revenues from sales, income and business taxes. And Governor Robert Bentley said more money would be available, but did not commit to specific amounts.
"Everyone wants increased funding," Gov. Bentley told Raycom News Network station WAFF. "We'll have to look to see where it will be best utilized as far as our recommendation to the legislature and we're working on that right now."
The proposed 29% increase for the two year colleges would add up to about $408 million dollars for the 2013 -14 budget.
