JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Jay Nixon chose Missouri State University as his venue to sign the Fiscal Year 2017 higher education budget into law Wednesday.
The school in Springfield achieved all of its performance goals, equaling an increase of $3.6 million in funding.
“When we talk about holding tuition, we’ve not done that for free. Okay? We have put dollars in to make sure that at the same time we were getting increases in quality,” said Nixon.
