This story makes me wonder how much money Baylor’s big wigs are sitting on?

Ohio lawmakers won’t let college buy $522 chairs

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio legislative panel has rejected Miami University’s plan to spend $167,000 on office chairs after learning officials picked the priciest ones available.

The 333 Aeron-brand chairs cost $522 each.

The Controlling Board, a panel of lawmakers that oversees state spending, voted 6-1 Monday against what normally would be a routine request. Board members say they were dissatisfied with an architect’s explanation for why staff and faculty needed the expensive chairs.

A spokeswoman for the Oxford school didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Jay Hottinger, a Republican from Newark, was one of the lawmakers who opposed Miami’s request. He reminded his colleagues on the panel that they were sitting in $2,000 leather chairs.
