Legislator wants to make cap on ND higher ed fees permanent

BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – North Dakota lawmakers are supporting a proposal to permanently limit the growth of some college student fees.

The North Dakota Senate’s Education Committee debated the bill Wednesday.

Under current law, increases in most college fees are capped at one percent of what a North Dakota student pays for tuition.

The cap goes away in June. But Senate Education Committee chairman Tim Flakoll (FLAH’-koll) of Fargo says there’s support in the Legislature for making it permanent.
