Assemblyman Miller Introduces Legislation to Cap Tuition Hikes

In a move designed to address the rising cost of higher education, Assemblyman Cody D. Miller introduced Bill A4538 which would cap tuition increases at public colleges and universities to 2% over the prior academic year. This legislation comes in response to growing concerns from students, families, and education advocates about the affordability and accessibility of higher education.

“Education is the cornerstone of opportunity and economic mobility. By capping tuition increases, we aim to make higher education more accessible to all students, regardless of their financial background,” said Assemblyman Cody D. Miller (D-Atlantic, Camden, Gloucester). “This bill is a step towards ensuring that our public colleges and universities remain within reach for every family in our state.”

Assemblyman Miller noted that, for years, tuition rates have been climbing at an alarming rate, placing a significant financial burden on students and their families. The escalating costs have led to increased student debt, with many graduates entering the workforce already struggling with significant financial obligations. The proposed bill seeks to alleviate this burden by implementing a strict cap on tuition hikes.

The bill, which was introduced on June 13, has been referred to the Assembly Higher Education Committee.
