Bill Information Edit
House Bill 39
Title: AN ACT relating to tuition waivers for children.
Sponsor: Wilson Stone
Date Introduced: 5 January 2016
Final Resolution: Dead
What Does It Do? Edit
Provides a tuition waver at any public university in the state of Kentucky for any student that has been placed in foster care at least 12 months before their 18th birthday.
What Are the Politics? Edit
This legislation would help many children who went through the often hard foster care process. It would ensure that at the very least, they would have a partial scholarship to go to college.
Kentucky is financially strapped as it is, and there are many avenues for high school students to pay for college even if their parents are unwilling or unable to help them.
What Happened? Edit
HB 39 never made it out of the House Education Committee.
