New measure to boost state's endowed chair program

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Brad Henry plans to sign a bill
designed to reduce a backlog of millions of dollars in the state's
endowed chairs program for Oklahoma colleges and universities.
The bill by House Speaker Chris Benge, R-Tulsa, and Senate
President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee, R-Oklahoma City, will authorize the
restructuring of an ongoing bond issue to try and generate
additional resources to help match private donations to the
Henry plans to sign the bill Wednesday.
In June 2008, the state placed a moratorium on its
dollar-for-dollar matching program for endowed chairs, but at that
point, state higher education regents had about $364.8 million in
donations waiting to be matched.
The previous month, state lawmakers approved a $100 million bond
issue intended to catch up on part of that backlog
