The governor's budget is designed to cap tuition increases at four percent over the next two years. But that's still too much, according to Lilia Williams of the United Council.

She says students want a freeze this year because tuition has increased over 70 percent in just the last six years. She says the governor's proposal would still price too many students out of higher education.

The group is also calling for an increase in financial aid for students.
