Supporting higher education affordability (Haler, Pollet, Holy)

Establishes that “It is a goal of the legislature to ensure that state support for the four-year institutions of higher education is at least fifty percent of the total amount of funding the institutions receive from general fund and education legacy trust account appropriations and the operating fee portion of tuition and fees.”

Requires institutions to report on our NGF-S/Tuition split each biennium, which we already effectively do. It does not, of course, appropriate us up to 50%/50%.
