MnSCU and University of Minnesota hope to extend tuition freeze - Alex Friedrich, MPR News

Lawmakers and state officials say they'll push for legislation in the upcoming legislative session to curb the rising costs of education even as they press campuses to provide more bang for the buck. Politicians from both parties want "to ensure access and affordability for students, put the brakes on student debt a little bit, and meet state workforce needs," said Higher Education Commissioner Larry Pogemiller. A focus of attention will be an extension of last session's two-year tuition freeze. Both the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system are asking lawmakers to fund its extension for another two years. http://www.mprnews.org/story/2014/12/30/education-2015
