February 26, 2015

State Senator Kel Seliger (R-Amarillo) filed SB 778, which will curb rising tuition by tying any increases to performance-based metrics.

Seliger said the result of the new bill would be to raise the value of postsecondary education by incentivizing high graduation rates, persistence, and a shorter time to degree among all students. In short, SB 778 holds Texas public universities accountable by requiring institutions to earn the right to increase tuition beyond inflation.
