Justice Pfeifer, creator of the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority, which helps parents save for children's college educations, commented on the Ohio Legislature's proposed budget cuts to higher education and how that affects people's future incomes and spending. "Anytime you start getting fees at higher education level too high, it begins to defer access and eliminate access for people that's always harmful," he said. The state budget is proposing cuts for higher education in order to fund primary and secondary education. All this is a result of the state Supreme Court's ruling that the way Ohio funds its schools is unconstitutional. Because the budget is not yet finalized, Justice Pfeifer could not comment on whether or not the state was using the most up-to-date information to determine per pupil costs in regards to funding amounts. The ohio Supreme Court will review the proposed budget in late June.
