Perry to UT regents: Don't rush to raise tuition

PAUL J. WEBER, Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Republican Gov. Rick Perry is again opposing tuition hikes within the University of Texas System as the flagship Austin campus proposes pushing the average semester cost past $5,000.

Perry sent a letter Wednesday to UT regent Chairman Paul Foster that urged the board to consider alternatives for raising revenues. Perry said "forcing students to bear the brunt of additional costs is not the solution."

Perry has clashed with UT before over tuition hikes. He's particularly been at odds with UT Austin President Bill Powers, who two years ago had his request to raise undergraduate tuition rejected.

The letter comes after a bipartisan Texas House panel this week found grounds for impeachment against Regent Wallace Hall, who Perry appointed in 2011.
