Another thing on the rise: U of M tuition

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (FOX 47) -- U of M officials have approved a proposal to increase tuition 9 percent for most students by 2011.

It's news many people don't want to hear, but is necessary.

The Legislature still has to approve the increase, but officials say it's needed to keep the university attracting top-notch faculty and research grants.

The budget request asks the Legislature to add $141 million to the nearly $1.5 billion it currently gives to the university for two years.
