New Jersey lawmakers look at college affordability

EWING, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey legislative committee is heading to a college campus to get input on affordability and other higher education issues.

The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee has scheduled a hearing Wednesday at The College of New Jersey to discuss a package of 20 bills focused on higher education.

One measure that students and parents may favor would freeze tuition rates for new students for nine semesters, so they would know before they enroll how much college would cost through graduation.

Another bill focused on college costs would allow New Jersey residents to deduct interest for college loans on their income tax forms.
