The University of Connecticut’s state subsidy would be cut by $65 million in each of the next two years under Connecticut’s new proposed budget.

The $130 million total cut is a reduction from the over $300 million cut to UConn proposed in a budget that was vetoed by Gov. Dannel Malloy after passing the Connecticut General Assembly on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Lawmakers may vote on the newest proposal this week after Sunday, marking 114 days without a state budget.
