Bill would give lawmakers power to set ND college tuition, fees - Mike Nowatzki, InForum

Debate over who should set tuition rates and fees at North Dakota’s 11 public colleges and universities began Wednesday as a committee heard testimony on a bill that would shift power from the State Board of Higher Education to the Legislature. Rep. Kim Koppelman, R-West Fargo, the prime sponsor of House Bill 1303, said the Legislature is often blamed for skyrocketing tuition but has done little to control it in recent years, “other than shoveling ever-increasing piles of money into appropriations for higher education. “We’ve often been told that that would solve it, but it has not,” he testified before the House Education Committee.
