House Republicans Offer College Affordability Plan


Illinois House Republicans are offering legislation that they say will help families cope with the high cost of higher education. 

 

One bill would offer a thousand-dollar tax credit for families of college students with a total income under $150,000.  Another bill would take the tax deductions in the state college savings program and extend them to similar private programs. 

 

Representative Rich Brauer doesn't know how much the tax breaks would cost, but says improving access to higher ed has to be a bigger priority.
