An Idaho group is kicking off their campaign to lower tuition in the Gem State through a ballet initiative. The group, StopTuitionHikes.com, is proposing a modest increase in tobacco tax in order to provide additional revenue for Idaho’s post-secondary public colleges and universities. This modest increase will lower tuition by 22% in the Gem State.
There will be a fun event tonight at Dawson’s Downtown coffeehouse in Boise this evening at 6pm to get the initiative rolling. Bring your caffeine craving to Dawson’s to learn more about the proposal and how you can help make college affordable in Idaho.
