Senator Kissel Reacts to State College Tuition Rate Hikes

March 23, 2016

Hartford-State Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) today reacted to the news that all 17 campuses in the Connecticut State University System will raise tuition.

“These tuition hikes have become a disturbing pattern,” said Senator Kissel. “I don’t question the fact that with the state budget in disarray that the colleges are running deficits. What bothers me is that tuition has gone up in relatively stable state budget years as well. We’re squeezing the young people of our state. I know from listening to many of my constituents that higher education opportunities are slipping out of their reach.”
