PACT members worried over new legislation

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Today is the annual higher education day at the Alabama Statehouse. Hundreds of college students will make the trip to Montgomery.

Top on their list of issues is the rising cost of a college education.

Those working with Alabama's Pre-paid College Tuition program say it is once again in jeopardy.

The trouble stems from a push to get rid of a cap that has been put in place to keep state colleges from increasing tuition more than 2.5% a year.
