TOPEKA - The Kansas Board of Regents says the Kansas Legislature will determine if tuition is frozen for the next
In a statement Thursday, the board reaffirmed its support for
freezing tuition at current levels for Kansas residents attending
Regents colleges and universities.
But the board says the freeze depends on actions by the
Legislature, including not making any further cuts in higher
education spending. The Regents also say lawmakers must avoid any
new unfunded mandates, and must uphold Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' veto
of legislative restrictions on using federal stimulus money.
The board urged legislators to delay imposing salary increases
and longevity payments for employees at colleges and universities.
The board said it will make its decision on a proposed tuition
freeze in May or June.
