Coming soon - big cuts to state's colleges

Now that legislators are really starting the process of crunching budget numbers, it's becoming (painfully) clear that the magnitude of the coming cuts mean big changes for many people. Like college students who likely face higher tuition and trouble registering for classes that fill up quickly because of fewer teachers.

Rep. Deb Wallace, Chair of the House Higher Education Committee, spoke to TVW's Austin Jenkins on Inside Olympia about what's in store for our state's colleges and universities in the wake of budget reductions as high as 20 percent.

The show will air on TVW tonight but you can watch it online now.
