ATHENS - The University of Georgia is bracing for possible layoffs as part of state-mandated budget cuts for all Georgia colleges. <br />
Gov. Sonny Perdue asked every state agency to trim 3.5 percent from their budgets, but University System of Georgia Chancellor Erroll B. Davis told colleges to cut 5 percent. For UGA, that would mean about $20 million. <br />
UGA senior vice president Tim Burgess says layoffs are possible under the cuts. The state Board of Regents will vote on a systemwide budget reduction plan at its meeting in August. <br />
Those recommendations will be forwarded to state legislators, who will take up the issue when they convene in January. State tax revenues are down 1 percent, or $600 million, over the last year. <br />
