Keeping SUNY Affordable

Dear Friend:

I was the first in my family to go to college. Education created opportunity for me in business, and later in government. My daughter graduated from SUNY New Paltz.  The SUNY schools in our Senate District -- New Paltz, Delhi, and our lo-cal community colleges -- present educational opportunities for area residents and create jobs in the region.

Last year, the Legislature diverted tuition, paid by those who attend SUNY, and sent those dollars to pay for other func-tions of state government. I opposed that move. I believe that taking SUNY tuition and not using it for SUNY amounts to a tax on the students and families who pay tuition.
