A victory for the Blunt Administration and, in the view of Governor Matt Blunt (R-MO), a victory for Missouri students.

A class action lawsuit intended to stop the Governor’s plan to sell off $335-Million worth of assets of MOHELA – the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority – has been dismissed. Governor Blunt says he hopes what he calls a bogus lawsuit over the Lewis and Clark Discovery Initiative will be the end of the legal action against the MOHELA deal, but he can’t guarantee anything.

The plan has already seen $62-Million distributed to colleges and universities for state-of-the-art learning and research centers and other campus construction.
