Maine Senate President Looks To Expand Tuition Program For National Guard Members

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Senate President Mike Thibodeau wants to expand a program that allows National Guard personnel to attend state colleges and universities tuition-free.

Last year, a 100 percent tuition waiver went into effect for National Guard members who attend the University of Maine System and Maine Community College System schools.

Thibodeau says he wants to build on that to include private schools.

He also says he is introducing a bill in the coming session.
