Introduced by Rep. Robert Genetski (R) on September 15, 2011, to close a loophole exploited by universities in the language of the 2011-2012 state budget provision that reduces appropriations for schools who raise tuition by more than 7.1 percent. The bill also would cut 2011-2012 appropriations by $31 million (the amount of extra revenue two universities will get because of the loophole).
Referred to the House Appropriations Committee on September 15, 2011.
Re: 2011 House Bill 4980 (Close state university tuition restraint loopholes ) by janniceK on March 13, 2012 This is the fair thing to do, I am so glad that the bill is finally here. I had my share of problems with the tuition fees back in college. It's one of the things that helped me decide for an international business mba online when the time came. Thing got a lot easier for me this way.
