The National Conference of State Legislatures has released State Funding for Higher Education in FY 2009 and FY 2010.
Here's an excerpt:
The following information summarizes the findings for FY 2010, including the impact of ARRA [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act] funds:
- Thirty-nine of the 46 reporting states used fiscal stabilization funds to support higher education, resulting in a 2.3 percent increase in year-over-year higher education funding. Without ARRA, funding would have decreased 2.5 percent.
- Ten states reported increases of more than 5 percent in FY 2010 higher education appropriations.
- Even with the ARRA money, 23 states reported funding decreases from FY 2009 levels, with eight states reporting drops of more than 5 percent. Hawaii and Idaho reported declines of more than 10 percent.
