State House postpones Penn State appropriations hearing

From CDT staff reportsFebruary 12, 2014 

A winter storm has caused the state House of Representatives to postpone a hearing Thursday in Harrisburg during which Penn State President Rodney Erickson was to testify about the university’s need for state funding.

The state Senate hearing also canceled its appropriations hearing for Penn State, and lawmakers have not yet rescheduled the hearings.

Gov. Tom Corbett has proposed $214 million for Penn State in his 2014-15 budget. That money would go toward subsidizing the cost of in-state tuition.

The budget calls for other funding for the university’s agricultural research and extension.
