MARYVILLE, MO (2009-11-18) At least one GOP leader in the Missouri House is indicating the majority party might accept the governor's agreement with the state's college presidents to just cut their budgets 5% if they freeze tuition levels.
Maryville representative Mike Thomson is the vice-chair of the house's higher education committee. He points out state law currently ties tuition raises with the state's consumer price index anyway. So tuition probably wouldn't have raised that much. But Thomson says since law makers have to approve the governor's plan, his intent is good. Thomson says he believes educating workers is the only way Missouri will get out of the economic recession, so holding higher education harmless is the right thing to do.
