Gene Pelowski (DFL-Winona), chairman if the House higher-ed committee, tells MPR political editor Mike Mulcahy he’s got some legislation coming out Monday that targets colleges’ administrative spending:
“You will see oversight language on Monday that begins to address both reporting to the legislature on a mandatory basis, on a regular basis, of how they’re spending the money. And it’s very likely you’re going to see parts of our bill focusing on administration.”
