The Kansas Board of Regents will meet this week to decide how to cut an estimated $114.4 million from the state’s higher education system over the next two years.

Due to an expected decline in revenues, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has asked state agencies to develop budgets with a 3% cut in the current fiscal year and another 4% cut in fiscal 2010. In addition, she asked the regents to cut $36.8 million of program and capital spending at institutions of higher learning.
