Colo. lawmakers approve tuition overhaul

DENVER — A bill that would give Colorado colleges more flexibility to set tuition rates won approval today from the Senate Education Committee.

College presidents and educators told lawmakers they need flexibility to set tuition rates if the state wants them to give up $300 million in state funding.

Sen. John Morse, a Colorado Springs Democrat, says the state needs the money to cover a projected $1.7 billion budget shortfall next fall.

The full Senate will consider the proposal, which would require colleges to meet strict goals for graduation and employment of students or to roll back tuition increases.
