Good News from NY State

from NY PIRG:the Senate and Assembly joint budget agreement for higher education for 2006-2007: "This is the best budget for higher education that New York has seen in a generation," said Miriam Kramer, NYPIRG's government policy analyst. "The governor must sign this legislation into law to leave a legacy of a more affordable, accessible, quality education for New York's college students and families."

"The Senate and Assembly agreement includes important reforms to the Tuition Assistance Program," added Kramer. "If approved, this budget will allow part-time students to receive grants and students whose family income decreases to adjust their awards in the middle of the year, allowing TAP to better meet the changing needs of today's college students."
