State budget talks could force tuition hike for state universities

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Spending cuts considered in the legislature could lead to another tuition increase.  That was the warning from two members from the Iowa Board of Regents on Friday.

There's already a 3.75 percent increase approved at UNI, Iowa and Iowa State set to begin fall 2012, based on current budget requests.

House Republicans have proposed deep cuts in that budget, and the Regents president says that could force bump in tuition.
