Governor Brian Schweitzer is pushing for a tuition freeze as part of his last biennial budget submission. While advocating for the plan, Schweitzer compared tuition to taxes. “Make no mistake about it,” said the governor, “a tuition increase is a tax increase.”

In order to get a tuition freeze, the Governor is asking the 2013 legislature to set aside 34 million dollars for state colleges and universities to offset the foretasted income deficit. Reportedly, higher education officials have agreed to the deal. the 2013 legislature, however, will most likely look to the next governor’s budget rather than Schweitzer’s.
