Gov. Jay Nixon on Friday withheld more than $172 million from the more than $23 billion budget plan lawmakers approved, including $246,874 from LU and $65,359 from Linn State Tech.

Lincoln now is set to receive $17,438,672 — down more than $1.3 million from what lawmakers budgeted last year — and Linn State will get $4,616,807, a $347,502 cut from last year’s approved budget.

Neither school’s president was available for comment Friday.
