ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Students and faculty members from New York’s public universities have called on state lawmakers to increase funding for higher education.

Hundreds of students and dozens of employees gathered at New York’s state Capitol Tuesday as the Legislature held a hearing on the state’s investment in higher education.

In his $142 billion state budget proposal, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called for nearly $60 million in additional higher education spending and changes intended to make funding more dependent on performance than enrollment.

The state’s system of public universities, colleges and community colleges serve more than 1.3 million people a year.
