Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Troy) today attended a press conference led by Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,C,I,Ref-Canandaigua), Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (R,C,I-South Huntington) and Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-Brooklyn, Staten Island) where they presented plans to improve college accessibility. These proposals will highlight advancements in the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and ways to assist those currently paying off student loans. With limited financial concerns, more students will have the option to attend college in New York.
“After Gov. Cuomo’s questionable attempt to create a ‘free tuition’ plan, I’m thrilled that my colleagues are proposing a plan that benefits everyone rather than the select few,” said McLaughlin. “This proposal will help a greater number of students to earn a college education. Students should never be limited by inflated college tuition costs, and we need to ensure we minimize as many financial roadblocks as possible. I am confident that these proposals will benefit those who want to attend college, those currently attending and those who already graduated.”
