Haslam signs Tennessee Promise legislation into law

Article taken from http://www.bizjournals.com/memphis/news/2014/05/13/haslam-signs-tennessee-promise-legislation-into.html

 

The Tennessee Promise is now a reality.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed a bill into law that commits to providing two years of community college or a college of applied technology free of tuition and fees to graduating high school seniors on a continuing basis.

The bill, which Haslam first announced during his State of the State address in February, will use surplus lottery reserve funds to create an endowment to fund college tuition for students. Through the program, students who want to complete their bachelors degrees at four-year schools would start as juniors and pay tuition for two years instead of four.

Tennessee Promise is part of Haslam’s Drive to 55 Initiative, which was created to increase the percentage of college graduates in the state by 2025.

“Through the Tennessee Promise, we are fighting the rising cost of higher education, and we are raising our expectations as a state,” Haslam said. “This is a bold promise. It is a promise that speaks volumes to current and prospective employers, and it is a promise that will make a real difference for generations of Tennesseans.”
