“No government-funded program is free. Taxpayers always pay the price and frankly, people in New Jersey pay far too much already,” Senator Kean said.

“I strongly believe we have to do more to make higher education more accessible and affordable for everyone, but we have to do it in a responsible way.

“We can partner with industry leaders to make sure students are getting the right skills to succeed in today’s workforce. We can do more to bring down the cost of college and help students graduate on time.

“What we shouldn’t do, is force overtaxed families to pick up the tab for Governor Murphy’s spending-spree.”
