A bill that makes college a little less expensive is on its way to the governor’s desk.
The “College Affordability Act” pumps $100 million into higher education funding, much of which will go toward student financial aid.
The bill also caps tuition cost increases at 6 percent, lower than the current rate of 9 percent.
The bill passed the House on April 25, following a bipartisan vote of 48-16. The bill had previously passed the Senate, where it was sponsored by Sens. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, and Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge.
