Lawmakers Approve Higher Ed Funding Increase

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa House and Senate have approved an education budget that should let higher education officials freeze tuition for a second-straight year.

Both chambers approved a $986.1 budget Wednesday night and sent the measure to Gov. Terry Branstad.

The spending plan includes 4 percent increases for Iowa's three public universities, plus an additional $2.6 million for the University of Northern Iowa.

Lawmaker were able to resolve a disagreement over funding of the University of Iowa. House Republicans had wanted to give Iowa a smaller increase.

The bill also increases general aid to community colleges by 4.1 percent, to $201.3 million.

Board of Regents President Bruce Rastetter thanked lawmakers for the funding increase.
