The Minnesota House has passed a higher-education budget proposal that would freeze undergraduate tuition at the state's colleges and universities. The bill also bans bonuses and gives the legislature greater oversight of schools. State Sen. Terri Bonoff, chair of the Senate Higher Education Committee, said the money should be used to improve the schools overall. "While you think you might be doing our students a favor, I would suggest that a hard freeze ... is not in the best interest for our students," Bonoff said.
