PEF Supports Gov. Cuomo’s plan to take on the spiraling cost of higher education in NYS

Statement from PEF President Wayne Spence:

The Public Employees Federation supports Governor Cuomo’s plan to take on the spiraling cost of higher education in New York State.  The plan’s model would provide state funding for higher education after federal loans and grant programs are applied.

With the threat of cuts in grants and education loans from the federal government looming, the Governor’s plan to make up any such deficit is not only proactive but makes New York State a national leader in its commitment to providing a college education that will lead to higher socioeconomic mobility and wages for thousands of eligible students in New York State.
