Oregon moves a step closer to 'free' college tuition

(CNN) – A bill currently awaiting Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber's signature could radically change the way in-state public university students pay their way through college.

Passed unanimously by the Democrat-controlled state Senate Monday after it had already cleared the also Democrat-controlled House, the bill would create a program called "Pay Forward, Pay Back" by which students wouldn't pay a dime at the time of study at any public institution for higher education in Oregon. Instead, students who qualify as Oregon residents would sign a binding contract that would require they pay a percentage of their post-college income back to the state every year for up to 24 years.
