Lawmakers back more funding for Haskell University

All members of Kansas' Congressional delegation sent a letter to the Bureau of Indian Affairs to urge more funding for Haskell Indian Nations University.

Haskell's classroom budget has stayed flat at $9.1 million for the past few years. This year alone, the school lost $1 million in operational and other costs.

The letter cited a need to improve Haskell's facilities and to address a 30 percent vacancy in full-time faculty positions.
