"The [Professional Staff Congress of CUNY], as an endorser of the March 4 Day of Action to Defend Public Education, will march proudly in tomorrow’s events," said PSC Treasurer Michael Fabricant. "Albany has disproportionately targeted public higher education in the last two years, and we call on lawmakers not to compound the damage by cutting CUNY again this year. New Yorkers are flocking to CUNY and enrollments are at record highs. Albany needs to consider progressive revenue sources, invest in public higher education because we regenerate our economy, and make a rational investment - planned and regular increases in state money for public higher education - in New York's future."
