'Pay It Forward' tuition program needs more planning, House panel says

June 9th, 2015

Oregon's much-discussed "Pay It Forward" tuition repayment program still isn't ready to launch, a House panel said this week.
House Bill 2662 would have established a program allowing students free college tuition if they agreed to return a portion of their post-graduate income to the state. But the program needs a more detailed plan before it can proceed, committee members said Monday before amending the bill and sending it to the House floor.
The amended version calls for the Higher Education Coordinating Commission to build on the pilot program proposal they presented to the Legislature last fall, come up with a framework and price tag and report back to lawmakers in 2016 and 2017. Legislators would retain final say on whether the program will come to fruition.
