Montana legislature should freeze tuition, invest in higher ed

January 16, 2013View for printing

The 2013 legislative session is an important time for Montanans who care about the price of enrolling their family members or themselves in college. Over the next four months, legislators and the governor will be working together on the state's budget priorities for the next two years. The Montana University System's top priority is to work with legislators on a college affordability plan (a "CAP") to freeze tuition rates over the next two years.

We have a good opportunity for legislators of both political parties, in both the state Senate and the House of Representatives, to join in bipartisan effort and credit for keeping tuition rates affordable for all Montana students and families.
