Making College Affordable Again

Posted on Friday, June 13, 2008 6:02:56 PM

If we want smart and hardworking Texans to be able to get ahead without busting the family budget - and we want our state's economy to thrive - then I believe college must be affordable and accessible.

Last year I helped pass
legislation to assist parents saving for college, but my bill to freeze skyrocketing tuition didn't make it. 
Next session we will push harder to make college affordable, and this new report outlines some of the ways to do it. I'd love to hear what you think of it.
