Cuomo says he is undecided on new SUNY campus

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he
hasn't decided if he supports a proposal that would create a 65th campus
in the State University of New York that would be devoted to the
growing field of nano science.

Cuomo says Thursday he doesn't have any “inside information” on the proposal and has no firm opinion.

It was the first public confirmation of the major
proposal kept tightly under wraps by SUNY and state government since it
was revealed Wednesday. The Associated Press reported SUNY is
considering turning its College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering
into a campus separate from the University at Albany, where it began.

According to the proposal obtained by the AP, the
new campus would have its own president, budget and board dominated by
appointees by the governor.
