Passing a balanced budget is one of the few constitutional requirements for Tennessee lawmakers.

 


Tennessee Senate approves tuition equality proposal
AP Friday April 17, 2015

Tennessee residents who are authorized to be in the United States would be eligible for in-state tuition under legislation that has passed the Senate. The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the House Finance Committee. Under the proposal, students considered lawfully present in the U.S. through a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals would qualify for in-state tuition. Such students now pay nearly three times as much for higher education -- the out-of-state rate -- even if they've lived in Tennessee for most of their lives.
