President Wethington asked the Trustees to read the other items in the report at their leisure. E. Operating Budget Comments President Wethington said that the Board would normally be considering the 1994-95 Operating Budget at this meeting, but due to the lack of final action in the General Assembly, an Operating Budget for next year could not be presented.

He said that he anticipated that the budget would be approved in the next few days and announced that the Executive Committee would meet at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 18, 1994 in the Board Room on the 18th floor of Patterson Office Tower, providing the budget is approved prior to June 18. He noted that this announcement of the Executive Committee meeting is an official notification to the public and media. F. Personnel Actions (PR 2) President Wethington recommended that the appointments, actions and/or other staff changes which require Board action; and the report relative to appointments and/or changes already approved by the administration be accepted. Professor Mather moved approval. His motion, seconded by Mrs. Bell passed. (See PR 2 at the end of the Minutes.) G.
