Rural Degree Measure Clears Senate Committee

February 18, 2010

A bill that aims to make it easier for people in rural Colorado to get a four year college degree easily cleared its first hurdle at the capitol, passing the senate education committee on a 7-1 vote. The strong support from lawmakers comes despite objections from the Governor's office and the state's Higher Education Department. Bente Birkeland has more from the state house.
