Texas Senate Approves Tuition Increase

In the Texas legislature, a bill that could raise university tuition by more than half, now just awaits the governors signature. The bill would allow universities to set their own tuition rates, as opposed to the state setting them.

Under the bill schools could charged up to $115 this fall and as much as $142 in 2004. Supporters say it helps universities offset state budget cuts. Those against it say it makes higher education unaffordable for the middle class.
