Becky Elam stated additional information is available at She reminded members that last March MSJC experienced over $1 million in budget cuts. Additional cuts were taken in the final fiscal 2004 budget which resulted in 10 percent cuts to MSJC discretionary budgets. Since community colleges did not receive a COLA last year the District balanced the budget through budget cuts resulting in a reduction in services. Becky stated the Governor's Budget is an improvement over the prior year and demonstrates a commitment to K-14 by the current administration.

Next Meeting will be February 18, 2004 at 3:30 PM.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:40 p.m.
