Bill will create free bachelor’s degree program for low-income students

Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) introduced a measure on Feb. 6 to create a tuition-free bachelor’s degree program.

Assembly Bill 2093 will expand the California Promise Program, allowing all low-income students to pursue a bachelor’s degree at any community college for free. Additionally, the bill will encourage low-income students to pursue higher education without the fear of significant college debt.
