Iowa House approves shift in university funds

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lawmakers from the Iowa Senate and House have agreed to meet to hammer out details on an education budget, as the chambers have not agreed on public university spending increases, among other provisions.

The Senate rejected a plan from the House on Wednesday that would give the University of Iowa less of an increase than that given to Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa, and the House then adhered to it. Lawmakers will now meet to discuss the budget and settle differences between both parties and chambers.

Democrats say giving less money to UI could result in a tuition increase, but Republicans say the school has enough cash reserve to avoid raising tuition.

The bill as a whole appropriates funds for educational programs.
