Tuition hike plan sails through Senate committee
Despite a new poll showing overwhelming disapproval for higher college tuition, a Senate panel this morning passed a bill that would allow increases up to 15 percent annually. It passed unanimously.
"We have been getting by on the cheap for so many years that it's become somewhat of a mindset," said Sen. Steve Oelrich, chairman of the Committee on Higher Education.
