Statement from Borough President Diaz RE: Gov. Cuomo’s College Tuition Proposal:

“I want to congratulate Governor Andrew Cuomo on his announcement of a groundbreaking new initiative designed to provide free tuition for college through a supplement aid program that helps middle-class families and individuals achieve their academic goals.

“Making college more affordable has been a priority of mine throughout my career as an elected official. Not only do I support exploring a change to make CUNY tuition free, I believe that the Department of Education should be paying for remedial classes at CUNY for graduates of public high schools.

“By investing in free college education for New Yorkers, we are equipping our students and families with the skills they need to join the workforce of the future. Governor Cuomo has put our great state in position to be one of the leaders in the nation on this issue through this proposal,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
