PHOENIX (AP) -
House Speaker Andy Tobin wants to cut $15 million promised to the state's universities because he's angry the Arizona Board of Regents voted to raise tuition.
The Republican leader called the board's action last month "disrespectful" and said the increase will impact middle class students already bracing for higher student loan interest rates.
The $15 million is the second installment in a deal struck last year to bring the per-student funding at the state's three universities to the same level.
Tobin made the remarks during a wide-ranging interview with reporters in his Capitol office.
Regents presidents Eileen Klein said Friday that the universities held tuition flat the past two years and needed what she called a "modest" tuition increase.
Gov. Jan Brewer's proposed budget includes the funding.
