Regents Consider 2nd Tuition Freeze

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Board of Regents will consider a plan to freeze tuition rates for undergraduates from Iowa for the second straight year.
   The board that governs Iowa's public universities meets Thursday at the University of Iowa.
   Up for discussion is a plan to maintain current tuition rates for in-state undergraduates next year as long as lawmakers give the universities a 4 percent funding increase. The regents adopted a similar strategy last year, which has proven popular and was successful in the Legislature.
   The regents will also discuss a plan to reduce tuition for out-of-state students to improve sagging enrollment at the University of Iowa law school.
   The regents aren't expected to give final approval to either plan until December.
   Gov. Terry Branstad is expected to speak at the meeting.
