An area legislator is touting a bill coming out of the Higher Education & Employment Advancement Committee.  Ridgefield Senator Will Haskell says the proposal is a roadmap to debt-free community college, allowing high school graduates to begin their studies at community college without accruing debt. Students would need to maintain a GPA above 2.5, accept all available financial aid, and come from households with income of roughly $70,000 or less.  Haskell says the business community told the committee that 75 percent of jobs will require higher education beyond a high school diploma by 2025.
