Proposal must be passed by Regents before taking effect

In what could be the beginning of a wave of requests for a large tuition increase, the governor's task force released a report recommending in-state tuition increase $739 during the next three to five years.

If the Arizona Board of Regents agrees with the recommendation, in-state tuition would increase from $2,259 to $2,998 a year. However, they do not meet to discuss tuition until the spring, said Matthew Ortega, Regents assistant executive director for public affairs.

"All the task force recommendations are very preliminary," Ortega said. "Tomorrow, tuition is not going to go up a little higher."

The task force wants higher tuition to fund programs such as optics at the University of Arizona and water engineering at Arizona State University, said Francie Noyes, the governor's press secretary.

Likins, along with the presidents of Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University and the Arizona Board of Regents, wants to research the best ways to spend millions in tax money soon to come the university's way, and have a special meeting - a retreat - to decide how to spend that money, the result of the passage of Proposition 301.
