Duff wants tuition free college. Camillo: How are we “going to pay for it?”

Connecticut State Sen. Majority Leader Bob Duff, D-Norwalk, is a supporter of tuition-free college, telling the Hour newspaper of Norwalk, “I think it’s a goal we should have, because of the fact that education should be thought of as pre-K through an associates degree as the minimum.”  But even he agrees there is a question of how to pay for it.

Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Camillo, R-Greenwich, a member of the legislature’s higher education committee tells the paper: “It sounds great and really catches hold with a lot of younger people, but at the end of the day it’s not free.  Someone has to pay for it.  I want to see how we are going to pay for it.”

State Rep. Matt Lesser, D-Middletown, has proposed a bill that would put into place a debt-free program for in-state students at public universities.  The measure is scheduled for a public hearing

  1. Mr. Duff must also like the idea of Marianna for every one too. What’s wrong with these people with the give it to them free attitude. Who the hell is going to pay for this, the tooth fairy. This is a perfect example of why this state is going down the drain, Wake up CT. Just a thought, if the state passes the teacher pensions off to the cites, maybe they’ll be enough money for the free college in the state coffers. Watch your pockets CT, the long arm of Malloy is on the move.
