The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education are asking lawmakers for a $125 million budget increase during the 2020 legislative session.

The regents voted unanimously Thursday morning to pass a budget request that would increase the state’s appropriation to colleges and universities to $927 million. The request, formally called the system’s “budget needs,” serves as a wishlist. Historically, state lawmakers have not granted the requests.
