When real Arizonans are getting active on developing a well-educated population to fuel our economy and improve our quality of life, the GOP controlled House of Appropriations Committee has passed House Bill 2675 requiring most students at Arizona's public universities to contribute at least $2,000 annually toward their tuition. The bill is sponsored by Representative John Kavanagh.
HB 2675 places an unfair burden on too many students who have applied for and earned scholarships. It represents an enormous intrusion by government into the lives of students and ultimately creates barriers to attain the dream of college education.
This bill violates the AZ Constitution which states “college education should be nearly as free as possible" for every student.
Please sign the petition and make your strong oppotition to HB2675 be heard.
