The President of Washington State University lives in Western Washington, even though WSU and the State pays for his house in Pullman. Washington is currently paying for his two homes. Force him to live in Pullman!
Grant universities greater autonomy from the Legislature and state rules in exchange for reduced appropriations. University appropriations have already been cut by nearly 20% since 2007 while not receiving any freedom to set their own tuition rates or generate new sources of revenue. Grant UW and WSU tuition autonomy, but cut their appropriations to only fund essential staff and low-income education grants.
