  • NC legislators discuss pros and cons of proposed tuition cut bill

    Senate Bill 873, which would lower tuition to $500 per semester at five UNC campuses — including four historically minority universities — was debated in legislative committees Wednesday. Supporters say the bill would be a major step forward in college affordability, but opponents say it would endanger some campuses because there is no guarantee that state funding will cover the tuition cut in the future.
