State lawmakers propose indefinite 6 percent tuition increase cap

This session, CU's lobbyists plan to work closely with the bill's sponsors to see if there's a way to more closely link a tuition cap to state funding.

"We're as concerned as anyone about tuition costs, and last year we came in well below the tuition cap that the state instituted," said Ken McConnellogue, CU spokesman. "Of course, that came along with significant state funding. So we're fine with the notion of tuition caps, but we would hope that they go hand-in-hand with continued state funding increases."

Though CU came in below the 6 percent cap last year, some schools didn't.
