Progress Report: Legislature Has Clarified Authority for Implementing Changes to Setting Higher Education Tuition and Fees, Report No. 06-75, December 2006
Full report in PDF format

Since the release of OPPAGA’s 2004 report, the Legislature has taken steps to clarify that it has primary authority for setting higher education tuition and fee levels. This has enhanced the Legislature’s ability to consider changes to state tuition policy such as providing tuition flexibility to universities, variable tuition, block tuition rates, and higher education vouchers. In 2005 and 2006, the Legislature granted limited tuition-setting flexibility to universities.
