Tuition Hike Starting at UConn
UConn is very low on money for their school. To change this issue, they’re considering a tuition hike. Officials have said that it will happen gradually over the next few years, so it’ll take some time. “Tuition is one of the revenue elements that is in our control and that is why it is on the table,” chief financial officer Scott Jordan told reporters. “We need to balance affordability and accessibility with our need to close the budget.”
Metro North tickets to increase
Officials have reported that starting soon, metro north tickets will be increasing at an even more advanced price. The state Department of Transportation said that this is occurring to help finance the M8 cars that were put into service in recent years. They said that this may not be occurring at every single station but to just be aware.
Malloy grants Syrian refugees into Connecticut
Many governors in other states including Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, and Republican Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas aren’t very happy about allowing syrian refugees into their state at all. The Paris attacks really made them think twice about their decision, In all honesty, they’re just being very diligent about their state's safety. But Dannel P. Malloy of Connecticut is thinking opposite of their opinions. "The security work is being done … and I think the people who are coming here are political refugees as opposed to the folks who … have gotten to Europe," Malloy said.
