Virginia Gov. Hints at Plan for Free Community College

Posted: Updated:

           

NORFOLK, Va. (AP)- Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam says he could soon be rolling out a plan for free community college tuition.           

In a Wednesday announcement, the Democratic governor described a program that would allow Virginia residents to attend community colleges for free in exchange for a year spent working in public service or a high-demand field.           

Northam said it would be called G3 for "get skilled, get a job and give back." He says he expects more details and a formal announcement to come in a few weeks.           

Northam's proposal follows a plan he laid out while campaigning in 2017. At the time, he said the program would initially cost the state $37 million but would earn more than twice that amount back in income taxes after five years.
