Update on the bond thing: today US Bank said, “Uh, sorry, we goofed. May we please have our $1.6 million back?”
We have learned that “…the full payments were the result of an error made at US Bank (the person there who normally processes these payments was out due to a death in the family, and the back-up person did not realize that US Bank had not received the entire amount of the funds).”
So how does this work exactly? Can the bank just go into your account and suck money out after depositing it? My close reading of The Faerie Queen in graduate school did not prepare me to answer this. More updates as they become available.
Meantime, Sen Majority Leader Lisa Brown says the Senate Ds and Rs and House Ds agree on $400 million in cuts and she believes it’s possible they could move those cuts before Dec. 17, when legislators begin to disappear for the holidays. That list isn’t available yet, but it is rumored that higher ed isn’t among them — yet.
