Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean issued the following statement in response to an announcement on a free community college pilot program announced by Governor Murphy today:

Sen. Tom Kean said Gov. Murphy’s free community college plan merely shifts the expense of tuition to New Jersey taxpayers. (Wikipedia)

“Free community college sounds great, but nothing is free. Governor Murphy’s plan merely shifts the expense of tuition to New Jersey taxpayers at an estimated cost of $200 million to $400 million when the program is fully implemented. As an alternative, I would like to work with the Governor on controlling costs at all of the state’s colleges and universities to keep tuition bills affordable.”
