Wednesday Open Line

On the governors desk this week is a bill that would establish a college fund for students that would be employed by the state. If the student meets criteria in regards to GPA and graduates within a particular program, then works for the state for a minimum specified number of years, their college loan would be paid for. The details are not set in the bill, they would be determined later, but the bill is for the creation of the fund and to start this process. It is not yet clear how the fund would be… funded.

You may read the full text of the bill here for S137.
