Secret budget deal shafts Arizona college students - Editorial board, The Republic

The deeper higher-ed cuts appear tied to Republican legislative leaders' rejection of a $6 or $7 increase in auto registration fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Tuition increases, you see, are one step further removed from the delicate, unsoiled hands of our legislators, who are happy to force regents and community college boards to do their dirty taxing work for them. From the view of our leaders on West Washington, you can call higher tuition a "tax" if you must, but it is not one by their hands. Not directly.
