2015 Legislative Agenda
MCCA respectfully asks the Governor and General Assembly to:
- Provide adequate and equitable funding to maintain core operating budgets at all Missouri public colleges and universities. MCCA strongly supports legislation that will provide $15 million in equity funding for community colleges.
- Keep the A+ promise. Restore full funding – including, if necessary, a supplemental appropriation – to guarantee that students meeting A+ requirements receive full tuition and fees at a community college or technical school. A+ should not be expanded unless the program is fully funded.
- Develop and implement a spending plan that will provide substantial, on-going investment in Missouri’s public college and university facilities.
- Achieve adequate support and funding for programs, such as the Missouri Works Training Program, that enhance workforce competitiveness and economic development.
