Last week we had an opportunity to share the College of Southern Idaho's successes with the Joint Finance and Appropriations Committee of the Idaho Legislature. We presented a program that emphasized the number of Magic Valley citizens we impact and how we accomplished this goal in an economical manner. We encouraged them to fund our health insurance so as not to decrease our current benefits. In addition, we lobbied for the bonding of college buildings, which would allow us to construct the Fine Arts Building addition. This bonding would stimulate Idaho's economy and does not require any additional tax-it is revenue from dedicated funds.
I know they are aware of our accomplishments and were very complimentary, but at the same time were cautious as to what funding might be forthcoming. I appreciate your support of the Governor's budget recommendation and have informed him of that fact.
It is my hope that the legislature does make the decision to support at least some increase for CSI. We have expressed our deep concern that with no salary dollars provided and a reduction in health insurance benefits, we are expecting our employees to carry a significant burden of our states' economic woes.
I want you to know that we are trying to do our best for you and I hope you have a very successful semester.
