Update: 3:41pm. This comment sums up the content of the meeting nicely:
Nothing definitive was predicted. We're now in the "planning phase" to implement budget cuts in line with the worst case house/senate budget scenario (~$300M cut). Some/many/most actions (unspecified) necessary to carry out those cuts must be delayed at least 120 days so unspecified "management actions," required by regulation can be carried out first. WAG on number of job cuts is 2500 (just a WAG!). No word on how all of this would effect students and limited terms immediately. Think that pretty well sums it up.
Oh, and don't let any of this bother you. Continue to stay focused and be safe.
