"Devil's In The Details"

House Budget Chair Rep. Allen Icet says Governor Jay Nixon's higher education deal for no 2010 cuts in exchange for no tuition hikes came as "a bit of a surprise."
Says he heard about it through a call while the Governor was making the announcement
Rep. Icet tells The Notebook he likes the part about "not passing a bill on to parents," but wonders, "Is this truly feasible for 2010?"
Adds he still isn't sure if this is part of a higher ed withholding for FY2009.
"The Devil's in the details," says Icet.
In a separate interview, Ozarks Technical Community College President Hal Higdon thanks Nixon for his efforts, but uses the exact same language to describe the budget picture: "The devil's in the details."
ALSO: House Higher Education Chair Gayle Kingery seems bullish on the plan.
