Ortt awaits details on how governor plans to pay for free college tuition

Posted 10 January 2017 at 1:41 pm

Editor:

If the Governor is going to retread Senator Sanders’ ideas and rhetoric from his presidential run, I’m hoping that – at the very least – we’ll get an idea about who will pay for it.

I’m all for free college tuition, just like I’m all for free puppies and apple pie. I’m fully supportive of any proposal that will reduce the severe burden that college tuition places on middle class students and families.

That’s why, along with my Republican colleagues, I’ve proposed numerous pieces of legislation to do just that. But I have serious concerns when sweeping statements, such as “free college education for all,” are made without fully considering what that will mean for our state, our taxpayers, and our institutions of higher learning.

State Sen. Robert Ortt

62nd Senate District

(The district includes Orleans, Niagara and a portion of Monroe counties.)
