Jersey Bill Would Limit College Costs

Jersey Bill Would Limit College Costs
BY COLLEEN ROACHE
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

New Jersey Assemblywoman Nancy J. Pinkin has introduced legislation that limits tuition and fee increases at certain colleges and universities in New Jersey.

The bill (A-3173) would impose a 4 percent cap on tuition and fee increases from the previous academic year at the state’s public institutions of higher learning. The bill mirrors the cap on municipal spending which has helped slow the growth rate on expenditures.

“At the root of a strong New Jersey economy is a well-educated population able to meet 21st-century challenges,” said Pinkin (D-Middlesex), a member of the Assembly Higher Education Committee. “By reining in on these costs, this bill will help students achieve their academic and professional goals by keeping college affordable for all New Jersey residents.”
