This would be great if we didn't have a scary high national debt. I am a grad student and research tech at UNL right now. Nebraska had cut funding to the university as it is and this bill would require states to increase funding to universities. I fear that if we got an increase in funding it still wouldn't be enough to cover expenses. Quality of education and research would likely decrease and it might end up a chaotic mess. I expect this would be the case throughout the country. We definitely need to do something to decrease interest on student loans, but our debt is too high to eliminate tuition entirely right now.
