Govs Get It Done: New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham Spotlights State’s Plan to Deliver Tuition-Free College
“[W]e’ve seen no action from the federal government. Instead, states are taking it upon themselves to address the crisis, like New Mexico.” – Stephanie Ruhle, MSNBC
“States are innovators, states are flexible, states are nimble – you can make these investments, and then just get it done. Waiting for the federal government creates more hardship for the very people that you represent.” – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham
In case you missed it, Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham appeared on MSNBC to talk about her plan to offer tuition-free college to New Mexico residents. The plan would allow all in-state students, regardless of household income, to attend any of New Mexico’s public colleges or universities tuition-free. It’s estimated that the scholarship would help 55,000 students attend college each year.
The program is the first of its kind in the nation.
