PITTSBURGH - Lawmakers are working to make college more affordable, or even free, for many Pennsylvanians.
The Pennsylvania Promise Act would cover two years of tuition for students at public community colleges and four years of tuition for students at a state college, if their family income is below $110,000.
According to lawmakers, a Marcellus shale tax and a personal income tax increase for high earners would support the plan.
