Missouri Governor Jay Nixon reversed the budget cut he made last summer to Missouri’s colleges and universities on Monday. The Governor says improvements in the state’s revenue picture made it possible to release $8.4 million that had been withheld from the state’s Higher Education system.  Meanwhile, he’s still withholding nearly $6 million from other wings of state government.

“While the revenue numbers are certainly good this month, we’ll continue to watch and see if we have continuingly good numbers and make decisions on those as we move forward,” Nixon said.
