Representative Working to Increase Enrollment in State Colleges

State Representative Greg Lucas is also working on legislation to lower the application fee for students applying for admission online.
State representative Greg Lucas is introducing legislation aimed at increasing enrollment in schools in the Pennsylvania state system of higher education.
Lucas's proposal would empower each PASSHE university to set its own tuition rates for out of state students.
That would allow them to compete with schools from other states for students.
The PASSHE board of governors currently sets tuition levels for all students at state-owned universities.
Lucas's bill would allow each school's council of trustees to set tuition rates for out-of-state students, but would require those rates to be at least as high as the tuition rate charged to in-state students.
Lucas is also working on legislation to lower the application fee for students applying for admission online.
