The "cut" was not so much a denial of allocated funds as an order to the universities to not spend the funds allocated. Justice Noble said that once the funds were allocated, the governor could not tell universities not to spend them.
As would be expected, press releases immediately came from the parties.
At a steering committee meeting on September 8th, facilitator Jonathan Miller announced the results of an online pick the best name with best acronym contest to name the group formerly known as the River County Economic Development Project.

One that says great people, great jobs, great pay, opportunity for growth, happiness and bluebirds and all things chocolate. One that costs the four counties participating in the economic development project nothing.
Free. Zero. Zip. Nada.
