University of Idaho President Duane Nellis says the lagging economy has hit his school hard. Budget cuts and tuition increases are challenging the Moscow institution. But Nellis says the economy will turn around, bringing new opportunities to Idaho. This week, he’s on a Statewide Leadership Tour, traveling, talking, and listening to what people have to say about the U of I. He stopped by Boise State Public Radio and told Samantha Wright the University has lost 20-million dollars in state funding in the past two years.
