The president of SUNY ESF says it would set the system back five to ten years. Neil Murphy says his campus stands to lose almost $6 million. Murphy says the school may be forced to enter a smaller class than it was planning for the fall. He says it would have to leave open some teaching positions and administrative spots, and may even force the school to cut some. He says this may all add up to the real possibility that some students may not be able to graduate on time. Murphy says he's in constant contact with Albany trying to get the governor to adjust the spending cuts. Paterson wants a plan to reduce spending from each agency and department in the state by May 16th.
