Clinton Partially Adopts Sanders Proposal for Free Public University Tuition

HeadlineJul 08, 2016

In news from the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton has announced a proposal to eliminate tuition at in-state public colleges and universities for families earning less than $125,000 a year. The proposal stops short of that of her rival, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who has proposed making tuition at public universities free for all students. Still, Clinton’s new position is seen as her largely embracing one of Sanders’ core issues in order to court Sanders supporters, particularly younger voters. Sanders is expected to give a formal endorsement of Hillary Clinton next week.
