ATLANTA (AP) - The head of Georgia's Senate Higher Education Committee is proposing a merger of two historically Black colleges with other schools to save money.

But University System Chancellor Erroll Davis cautioned that such mergers would face strong opposition from supporters of historically Black institutions nationwide.

Sen. Seth Harp told University System leaders during a budget hearing Monday that with 10 percent budget cuts looming, they should consider combining Savannah State University with Armstrong Atlantic University and Albany State with Darton College in Albany.

Any decision would be made by the Board of Regents. The system receives about $2.3 billion in annual state funding, but the governing body makes decisions about the system's 35 schools.
