UGA plans to move forward with budget cuts

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - University of Georgia President Michael Adams says the school plans to move ahead with budget cuts that would eliminate about 130 positions.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/Q4OAW6 ) that plans submitted to the state indicate that many of the positions are vacant or filled temporarily by rehired retirees. Plans submitted to the state also show that dozens of jobs currently filled by full-time staff would be eliminated.

Gov. Nathan Deal has told nearly all state agencies to cut their budgets by 3 percent this year and next because of the sluggish economy. While the cuts must be approved by the Legislature, many agencies are moving ahead with their plans. Adams said UGA will implement its cuts unless told otherwise.
