Education in Tennessee Would See Deep Cuts

MTSU Prof. Warns About "Super" Budget Cuts

The congressional "Super Committee" appears to be making little progress in its goal of cutting $1.2 trillion from the federal budget.

If the committee fails to come to agreement, then $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts will go into effect.

Dr. Murat Arik, a researcher with the Middle Tennessee State University Center for Business and Economic Research says Tennessee will be deeply impacted.

Dr. Arik says federal education dollars that normally flow to Tennessee would likely be among the first casualties.
