Ross Reynolds speaks with Washington state Sen. Barbara Bailey, chair of the Senate Committee on Higher Education, about University of Washington President Michael Young's surprise decision to leave and take the top job at Texas A&M University.

Correction 02/05/2015: In the broadcast version of this story, KUOW incorrectly referred to UW and Texas A&M endowments as "budgets." The University of Washington’s endowment is $2.8 billion. Texas A &M university has an endowment of $11 billion. That’s according to the National Association of College and University Business Officers.
