Mesa State Bill Dies Again In The Senate

For the fourth time, lawmakers have denied Mesa State College's request to control its own money and take it out of the hands of the state. The proposal would have allowed the college to invest its own state appropriations. The change would provide the college with more cash to combat the rising costs of higher education. Currently the state treasurer has control over the money and State Representative Josh Penry says Treasurer Mike Coffman is placing his office and own interest above what's best for the college. Penry also says the battle is not over. Supporters will continue to pursue getting the legislation passed either this year or possibly in the next session.
