JSU Could Lose Funding
for Three Centers

September 16, 2003 -- Governor Bob Riley's proposed 2004 Education Trust Fund budget, posted at http://www.budget.alabama.gov/ETF2004.pdf , eliminates funding for three major, long-established programs at Jacksonville State University.

The governor's budget, which is being considered by lawmakers in special session, eliminates $125,000 for the JSU-Gadsden Joe M. Ford Economic Development Center, $100,000 for the Alabama Police Corps Program, and $126,630 for the Aerospace Development Center. These amounts represent 100 percent of the centers' expected funding from FY 2004 ETF appropriations. The governor's proposal also reduces JSU's overall funding by $111,772.
