Gov. Tom Wolf has officially signed funding bills for state universities. Wolf signed the bill Friday after it was sent to his desk Wednesday night that will supply Penn State Pitt, Lincoln University and Temple with $650 million in funding. "Our flagship higher education institutions should never again be held hostage in the General Assembly's budget process, These are high impact and invaluable assets for our commonwealth's students and economy. Our state investment helps keep these world class universities affordable for state students. State universities were without state funding for four months and even university leaders were concerned that tuition hikes may have been needed if the funding was not provided. Penn State President Eric Barron announced Thursday that with the passing of the university funding bill those proposed tuition hikes were not going to be needed.
