    For the FY 2013-2014 Penn State is seeking an appropriation from the State in the amount of $289.5 million dollars which is an increase of $10.6 million dollars over the last year.

    Because the University will not become a party to the suit the Legislature should hold back $60 million dollars of the appropriation to pay the NCAA fine in the event the Court rules in the NCAA's favor.

    Taxpayers in the Commonwealth should not be burdened paying legal fines that came about because of the malfeasance or misfeasance or nonfeasance of the employees of the University and/or it's Board of Directors.
