House Sends Cap on College Courses in High School to Kemp
Georgia high school students are likely to face a cap on the number of college courses for which the state would pay. Representatives voted 103-67 on Tuesday to accept Senate changes to House Bill 444. It goes to Gov. Brian Kemp for his signature.
The Republican governor supports the bill, saying the cost of providing college courses for high school students is growing too fast. Most students would be limited to 30 hours of college credit. That's what a student typically has to take to finish a year of college. Kemp wants hold spending at its current $105 million a year.
