Students from state-related universities held a rally in the State Capitol voicing their concern over potential funding cuts ahead of Gov. Corbett's budget address. Temple student Alex McNeil, part of a strong Temple contingent led by Temple Student Government, noted the presence of Paul Clymer, House Education Committee Chairman and Bucks County Republican. "This does not entirely fall on deaf ears. Mr. Chairman, thank you for being here," McNeil said. In the budget freeze implemented in January, state-related universities were hit with a five percent cut in state funding.
