GA University system proposes shuttering 4-H programs

Georgia's 4-H programs could disappear.

The University System of Georgia is suggesting that 4-H programs
throughout the state be abolished as a cost-saving measure.

It's part of an effort to cut almost $59 million from the system's budget.

It could save almost $6.4 million - but will also result in 116 immediate layoffs, including 94 county 4-H agents and
closure of five 4-H facilities across the state.

These and other recommendations will be presented to the
Legislature as possible means of reducing expenses.

State officials at the Capitol will have the ultimate say, however.
