Faber Wants 5% Cut In College Costs, Drug Prison, Toxic Algae Bill

Sen. Faber

Senate President Keith Faber fleshed out his caucus's to-do list for the new General Assembly Wednesday, calling on state colleges and universities to decrease students' costs and proposing a new drug prison to handle the influx of addicted inmates.

Flanked by most members of the Senate Republican Caucus at a Statehouse news conference, the president said he was working on a plan that would require the state's higher education institutions to reduce their students' overall costs, including tuition, fees and other expenses, by 5% over the next biennium.
