Senate passes bipartisan bill making college more affordable

Email

The state senate achieved bipartisan agreement last week with the passage of the Higher Education Omnibus Bill. In total, the state would invest an additional $263 million into Minnesota colleges, universities and the state’s student grant program.

This would mark the first investment in higher education after more than a decade of deep cuts and tuition hikes.
