Tuition Could Go Up In Ehrlich Is Elected Again In Maryland

By Matt Bush

Former Maryland governor Bob Ehrlich says if he's elected again this fall, it's likely tuition rates will rise for the state's university system.

Ehrlich says any tuition increases would be small, and not the large hikes his opponent, governor Martin O'Malley, claims Ehrlich will institute.

Appearing on WAMU's "The Politics Hour", Ehrlich said tuition freezes are not always in the best interests of students or universities.

"I think tuition should probably, in small rates, increase in order to keep up at least with the rate of inflation, so that the schools can continue to deliver goods and services to our kids at a reasonable rate," Ehrlich said.

Tuition rates at the state university system were frozen during Ehrlich's last year in office, and during the first three years O'Malley was governor.
