Outrageous plan when they pay nothing to support UAMS Colleges. At some point, this State is going to have to fund medical education. Prudent saving is great - but not when an institution is in dire straights. Guess he figures that if he deprives enough citizens of access to health care, we won’t need more doctors anyway.
