Oppose Attack on Education by Arizona's Legislature!

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.

This action is supported by CADENA, the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition and Youth for Education in Action! YEA!

      Hello Supporters! Great news. According with this article, State Legislator Kavanagh withdraws his misguided tuition bill. Thanks for making your voices heard. We can claim victory.
      The fight is not over. Many AZ legislators do not represent our interests and will try again to introduce bad laws for education. Remain alert !

      I consider this an arbitrary, "mean" tax increase on the very people who can least afford to pay it.
