It was a surprise blow to Mary Baldwin College's VWIL program Friday.

Governor Warner's proposed budget cuts include the elimination of state money for the Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership.

The Governor cites the fact that the program was created back when Virginia Military Institute did not admit women. Now that it does, he argues against the need for state funding at Mary Baldwin.

School officials say it's unclear whether VWIL can survive without state aid.
