House panel to vote on rescuing Ala. tuition plan

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.
