From The College Fix:

A Minnesota lawmaker wants to make sure that financial uncertainty is never the reason a student drops out.

Minnesota Daily reports that Sen. Ron Latz of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (the state’s version of the Democrats) introduced a bill that would make college tuition-free for students whose families earn less than $125,000 a year.

It would apply to the University of Minnesota and schools in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, with the state’s general fund picking up the tab.
