Nodler opposes tuition cap for students
Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, indicated in an article in today's Columbia Missourian that he opposes a bill that would put a cap on college students' tuition.
The article says Nodler is troubled by provisions in the bill that would also limit the amount of money higher education institutions could receive from the state, though the amount would be still be considerably higher than it has been.
"I think that it (the bill) really impedes the ability of the governing boards to do their jobs," Nodler said. "I’m not in favor of that level of micro management by the legislature."
The bill, as you might imagine, is opposed by the state's colleges and universities.
