He says that money’s already been allocated. Dunker isn’t pulling out his budget axe just yet. He says it would be a mistake to cut money from community colleges in light of the state’s sluggish economy.He calls community colleges the “economic engines” of the state. Dunker says raising tuition to make up the cuts would go against the goal of keeping a community college education affordable.
