Budget cuts lead UK to eliminate nearly 200 jobs

The University of Kentucky will eliminate nearly 200 jobs, and faculty won't receive pay raises during the next school year.

The UK Board of Trustees approved a much tighter budget because of $20 million in state budget cuts.

Most of the 188 staff positions being eliminated are already vacant.  University President Lee Todd says the budget is far from perfect, but he'll receive a $95,000 performance bonus.

He was eligible for a bonus of more than $145,000, but he asked the board to transfer $50,000  to campus programs.
