The Chronicle of Higher Education

A bill that would tie tuition at public colleges in Washington State to a portion of the average state wage passed the State Senate on Wednesday, The Spokesman-Review reports.
The measure would sharply cut the cost of colleges statewide, with the larger ones required to set tuition at a higher percentage of the average annual wage — which is about $52,600 — and community and regional colleges assigned a smaller number. The tuition cuts’ cost to the state would be $112 million to $232 million.
