Off to the Capitol — A stable-tuition bill


Checking out discussion of three House bills, one of them being this:

Rep. Bruce Vogel (R-Willmar) wants both the University of Minnesota and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system to charge students the same tuition throughout their college careers.

In essence, university seniors should pay no more than they did as freshman, provided they’re completing the traditional four-year route. And community college sophomores should pay no more than they did the year before, as long as they’re completing the traditional two-year route.

The stable-tuition plan would kick in for freshman this fall.
