An announcement by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon that he will be withholding additional funds in state appropriations means Missouri Western State University employees will have to wait for a pay increase.
Missouri Western's Board of Governor's had approved a budget Thursday that would have given faculty and staff a 3 percent salary increase. That increase was removed from the budget following the Governor's announcement. Assistant Public Relations Director for Missouri Western Kent Heier says cutting pay increases will make up the bulk of the budget shortfall, but he is hopeful the Governor will reinstate the funds because there is not much room for cutting.
