Obama and Oregon hoping for free community college

Statesman Journal
January 20th, 2015

Among the proposals contained in President Barack Obama's State of the Union address was the idea that all Americans should be able to attend community college for free.
Whether that idea comes to fruition remains to be seen. It would cost billions nationwide, and Obama's speech did not explain how he plans to pay for the plan, although he referenced tax increases for large corporations.
However, Oregon lawmakers hope that free community college could, at least, become a reality in this state. The issue has come up before and failed, but it is back in 2015, already assigned to the Senate Education Committee.
