UMaine mentioned in BDN report on how federal budget cuts might affect universities

A statement from the University of Maine was included in the Bangor Daily News article on the impact of proposed federal budget cuts. Maine’s public university system and its researchers are keeping a close eye on the federal budget after many federal agencies that support university research and projects were targeted for significant cuts under the preliminary federal budget, according to the article. “It is still early in the federal budget process and there are no specifics on what or how funding cuts might affect University of Maine projects and programs,” the UMaine statement reads. “We are concerned about the potential impact that cuts to federal agencies may have on UMaine academic, research and service programs, and are closely monitoring legislative action on the federal budget proposals.” Maine Public also published the BDN report.
