Cheaper Student Loans, Who Knew?

Heading off to college in the CSU system could get a little more expensive next year if Governor Brown's tax initiative doesn't pass.

Fresno State freshman Jasmit Mann hopes to one day become a high school counselor.

She can't imagine a 5 percent tuition increase next year, if the Governor's Proposition 30 fails come November.

Jasmit Mann says, "I'm borrowing money off my parents and financial aid covers half of my expenses so that helps." Reporter asks, "Could you handle a 5 percent increase?" Mann says, "No, I can't."

In-state undergraduates would pay an additional $150.00 per semester, bringing their annual tuition to $6,270.00.

Students are angry.

They say Governor Brown is using this scare tactic to get his initiative passed.

Devan Cruz says, "It's probably a big scare that's going to affect the outcome of the proposition."
