Correction: Some barbs, lots of praise, for university budget

A Thursday story about the University of Minnesota budget left a mistaken impression about a tuition agreement between Minnesota and Wisconsin.

It should have read: If no new deal is reached between the two states, under a University of Minnesota plan, Wisconsin students would pay the same tuition rates as Minnesota students, not the lower rates Wisconsin students now pay to attend the Minnesota school. The new tuition would be phased in so it would apply only to new students, not Wisconsin students now attending the University of Minnesota.
