Regents approve higher student fees

ATLANTA -- Georgia college students will pay more fees and employees will shell out hundreds more dollars for health care under stopgap budget measures passed by the state Board of Regents on Wednesday.

With little discussion, the board hurriedly approved the increases to help fill a $186 million hole created by state budget cuts. The university system already cut 6 percent, or $136 million, from this year's budget in October, but now the board is cutting another 2 percent, or $46 million, in anticipation of further reductions from the state.
