U of M Pres: House Tax Bill Would Have Dire Consequences for Grad Students

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler is sounding the alarm, saying the tax bill that's already passed the U.S. House of Representatives would have dire consequences for the school's more than 5,000 graduate students. 

Beyond that, he says the state's economy would take a hit too.

"Widespread concern is an understatement," Kaler said when asked to characterize how students are responding to the bill. "People are very unsettled and upset about what this means."
