Connecticut steps closer to making community college debt-free

The Hartford Courant reported late last week that the state of Connecticut has taken steps toward adopting a debt-free community college policy through the passage of the state's budget. However, the plan would depend on a new online state lottery system for funding. From the Hartford Courant: "If the governor determines revenue from the online lottery is not sufficient to offset the costs of the debt-free community college program, he will be tasked with proposing adjustments to the state budget to account for the costs accrued." The plan is estimated to cost more than $6 million the first year with $2 million in implementation costs.
