Kentucky Commerce Chief Calls For College Tuition Plan

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The head of the Kentucky Chamber of
Commerce is pushing a college tuition plan that would spread the
cost.

The Courier-Journal in Louisville reported Tuesday that chamber
president Dave Adkisson presented his plan to a legislative
subcommittee on Monday.

The Guaranteed Affordability Plan - or GAP - would split the
cost of a college education among the student, the student's
family, the state and the school.

Students would be required to contribute an amount equal to what
they would earn at a full-time summer job and up to 15 hours per
week during the school year. The figures assume a minimum-wage job.

Adkisson said the formula would make the state financial aid
process simpler and would make college more affordable for
students.
