(SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Aug. 9, 2011) – “I applaud Gov. Cuomo for signing the NYSUNY 2020 bill that, for the first time in state history, establishes tuition policy that is fair, rational and predictable.

“NYSUNY 2020 enables the adult learners served by SUNY Empire State College throughout the state to better manage household budgets by replacing the sudden, large and unpredictable tuition spikes of the past with the ability to plan for future college costs.

“At the same time, the momentous reforms contained in NYSUNY 2020 ensure continuing access for those families with financial need and establish a foundation upon which SUNY and the state can build greater economic prosperity throughout New York.”
