MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama House committee is expected
to vote on three bills aimed at insuring that contracts for the state's prepaid college tuition program are honored.
The committee will meet at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Alabama
Statehouse to consider the PACT bills.
They include a measure to insure that the state pays obligations on current PACT contracts.
Other bills would set up a new board to oversee the PACT program
and another would set up a task force to advice the PACT program.
One proposal being considered by the legislators would limit
universities to raising tuition by 2.5 percent annually for the
45,000 PACT participants.
