IP candidate Hahn to unveil college tuition credit plan

Independence Party candidate for governor Rob Hahn will reveal a higher-eduction tuition credit plan today at the Capitol complex.

Hahn is running in the Aug. 10 primary election against endorsed IP candidate Tom Horner.

Hahn says his plan would let college students earn tuition credit by working part-time at jobs related to their school curriculum. And when they graduate, students who work for a participating business would get help paying back their loans.

Participating businesses would see reductions in their corporate state income taxes.

He calls it the PIE program — Partners in Education — and said he’ll serve pie when he provides more details of the proposal at 1:45 p.m. in Room 181 of the State Office Building.
