BATON ROUGE- The state Board of Regents on Monday again delayed actions on a proposal to adjust minimum admissions standards for state universities.

The board held a special meeting Monday after several members last week raised concerns about whether the state would be lowering standards and doing a disservice to education in the long run. But after discussing the tweaked proposal for an hour Monday, the board didn't have enough members to take a vote either way.

The state higher education board is expected to again debate the proposal at its regular meeting on June 17.

The state higher education board sets minimum admissions standards - schools could individually adopt higher standards on their own.
