Potential Cap for Kentucky Universities

Lexington, Ky – Kentucky's Council on Post Secondary Education President says he plans to talk to legislative leaders and Gov. Steve Beshear soon about a cap on tuition increases at public universities. Bob King tells the Lexington Herald Leader he plans to talk to lawmakers and Beshear before the full council votes on a tuition cap proposal during its meeting March 5 and 6. Some university presidents say in-state tuition increases next year aren't likely to reach the 7 to 10 percent hikes most schools imposed this year.
