Senator Announces Plan to Freeze Tuition At Texas Public Universities - KTBX

Senator Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown) filed legislation to make higher education more affordable by addressing the dramatic cost growth at Texas' public colleges and universities. Schwertner's SB 233 would cap tuition and fees at their current levels and limit any future increases to no more than the rate of inflation. "The pursuit of a higher education in Texas has never been more daunting, and as tuition and fees at our public universities continue to climb, the dream of attaining a college degree is becoming a nightmare for more and more Texas students," said Senator Schwertner. "I think the legislature has a responsibility to consider whether the deregulation policies enacted over a decade ago still make sense for Texas students."
