“All Rhode Is­land stu­dents in good aca­dem­ic stand­ing would qual­i­fy for two years of free tu­ition at any of the state’s pub­lic col­leges un­der a plan Gov. Gina Rai­mondo (D) will present this week to the Gen­er­al As­sembly as part of her fisc­al 2018 budget.”

Rai­mondo: “I want the people of Rhode Is­land to have a chance. … It’s also time to give middle-class fam­il­ies a break. Every­body is stressed about how they are go­ing to pay for col­lege. We have the money. This is af­ford­able. It’s a smart solu­tion.” (Provid­ence Journ­al)
