Posted: Updated:

Arizona universities are taking the necessary steps in case Prop 100 doesn't pass.

The Arizona Board of Regents approved plans from ASU, U of A and Northern Arizona University to implement a 2.75% reduction in salary budgets.

The $42-million cut is on top of the already $107-million cut from the general fund the last two fiscal years.

After 4 years of hard work, some U of A engineering students got to show off their skills Tuesday.

60 projects are being showcased at Engineering Design Day. Numerous technology companies sponsored the event and the students were judged on their presentations. Up for grabs, $10,000 in prize money.
