2/5/2013: His press release and link to full list here. Betsy Hammond delivers the $53 million in good news for OSU in the Oregonian. UO gets just $11 million in state money. Western gets $17 million.
Among the seven university campuses, only OSU, Portland State University and Western University would get more than $11 million of the pie if Kitzhaber gets his way.UO didn't do well last biennium either:
But WOU? 1/4 as many students as UO, and this kind of state capital funding, year after year? Wow, it's almost as if some powerful state legislator with influence over state funding also collects a paycheck from them. Oh. I see.
Meanwhile, Phil Knight's Oregonians For Higher Education Excellence PAC is still sitting on its $450K. But why should legislators sell their votes for that kind of money, when they can take the state for millions?
