Democrats cry foul over Michigan House education budget

LANSING (WKZO) -- The higher education budget is moving through the Michigan House, with approval by a subcommittee to increase funding to all public universities so long as they follow certain rules.  Democrats are crying foul with those rules, which crack down on schools which enact long-term contracts with faculty to skirt the state's new right-to-work law that takes effect next week.

Representative Al Pscholka is sponsoring the package, and says there is a funding increase for all schools that pledge to not raise tuition by more than three percent and don't enact long-term contracts that don't cut spending.
