Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett Higher Education Costs The costs of higher education are an ongoing con- cern to students and their parents, and taxpayers. Many students struggle with substantial debts from student loans on graduation. Contributing to the high cost is theffact that most students do not graduate from col- lege in four years. The U.S. Department of Education says that forty-four percent of 2007-08 graduates ob- tained their degrees within 48 months. The median time was 52 months. Factors that contribute to the problem are students who are not prepared for college and need remedial courses and students who change majors. While there are circumstances where it makes sense for a student to change majors, those changes should be kept to a mini- mum. Other factors are part-time students who are working to earn money for their tuition, required courses being full and not available to all students who need them to graduate and colleges that require more than 120 credit hours to graduate. Some students take courses entitling them to college credit while still in high school. That makes it easier for them to get their college degree in four years, or in some cases even less. According to The Center for College Affordability and Reliability, taxpayers would save $7.5 billion each year nationally, if all students graduated in four years. Though we recognize that it's not possible for every- one, it surely is obvious that students could save money if they plan their college majors and courses carefully and graduate in four years. Though it is a little off the subject of costs, I also encourage students to plan their courses so that they have a marketable skill on gradua- tion so they can find a job. Crime Victim Compensation The Crime Victim Compensation Program is found in Iowa Code Chapter 915. It is administered by the Iowa Attorney General. It compensates crime victims and their families for damages and out of pocket expenses if the criteria are met. Persons suffering personal injury as a result of a crime, trying to stop a crime or appre- hend a suspect may be eligible. In case of death, their heirs may be eligible. Compensation is paid only after other sources, such as health insurance, have been ex- hausted. Generally, victims must report the crime and apply for compensation within two years. The victims must not have been committing a crime, or consented to or provoked the crime, to be eligible. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or Julian.Garrett@legis. iowa.gov.
