LALOR, BALL AND BIPARTISAN COALITION PROPOSE TUITION REDUCTIONS FOR TROOPS FACING A SEQUESTER IMPOSED END TO THEIR EDUCATIONS Event to be held in the LCA Room, 130 LOB, Albany
Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I-Fishkill) and Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) will join a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers from the Assembly and Senate to propose tuition reductions for servicemen and women attending SUNY and CUNY schools who are facing the suspension of their tuition assistance from the military due to sequester-mandated cuts.
The Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard have announced that they will be suspending tuition assistance programs for active-duty and reserve personnel. Those currently enrolled will not receive tuition assistance for future classes. This bill would honor the promise our country made to our servicemen and women and allow those already enrolled in SUNY or CUNY schools to finish their degrees through tuition reductions matching the missing federal assistance.
WHO: Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor, Senator Greg Ball, and other members of the New York State Assembly and Senate WHAT: Announcing Tuition Reductions For Servicemen and Women Affected by the Sequester WHEN: 10:00 AM, Monday, March 18, 2013, WHERE: LCA Room 130, Legislative Office Building, Albany
