Free college for area students?

Posted:

Davenport (KWWL) - Davenport voters will decide whether to use profits from a local option sales tax to pay for free college tuition for local grads.

Supporters say the investment will bring jobs, but critics fear it's too much of a gamble with taxpayer money. Voters will decide Tuedsay whether or not to provide $20,000 in tuition breaks for each Davenport student.

The money would be good at any school.
