26 Oct: Cunningham Bill To Address High Cost Of College Tuition Approved In Senate

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham that would study and make recommendations to the Legislature and the Governor on ways to combat rising college tuition rates in New Jersey was unanimously approved yesterday by the State Senate.

“With the continued rise of tuition and fees, it is becoming harder for New Jersey’s middle-class families to afford to send their children to college,” said Senator Cunningham, D-Hudson, and chair of the Senate Higher Education Committee. “It is imperative that we discover the root cause of these tuition hikes and determine a plan to tackle the problems head on. I look forward to hearing the committee’s report so we can determine a plan to ensure all New Jersey students have access to our excellent higher education system in the state.”
