Granholm calls again for universities to lower tuition increases
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Jennifer Granholm says Michigan
is the state in the best position to take advantage of growing
concerns over global warming and the push for renewable energy.
The Democratic governor also told the Michigan Press Association
on Friday that new business incentives she has proposed will lead
to new jobs and that smaller high schools will give students the
attention they need to succeed.
Afterward, Granholm told reporters she wants state universities
to hold down tuition increases this fall to no more than the rate
of inflation. The Detroit-area Consumer Price Index rose 1.9
percent over the course of 2007.
She also wants universities with large endowment funds to
consider tapping them to make college more affordable.
