Gov. Dayton in higher-ed funding discussion Wednesday

This from our Capitol View blog:

Gov. Mark Dayton is scheduled to participate Wednesday in a roundtable discussion on higher education funding.

The event will be held at Metropolitan State University, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Representatives of the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, University of Minnesota, Private College Council and Minnesota Career Colleges will also participate.

An advisory for the roundtable lists several topics for discussion, including the impact of proposed spending cuts on people, jobs and tuition.

I'm checking into whether I can attend, and then live-blog the discussion.

I'll post more as I get it.
