ABOR prepares for legal battle over tuition

(09/12/17 3:34am)

The Arizona Board of Regents held a special meeting Monday to seek legal advice in response to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich's lawsuit claiming that the board's tuition hikes were unconstitutional. In a statement he penned Monday, ABOR chair Bill Ridenour said the lawsuit will allow the board to seek clarification on how best to provide education “as nearly free as possible,” but that he was disappointed in the way it was delivered. “The AG’s lawsuit — while it makes for good headlines — does nothing to change the burden for students and their families,” the statement read. “The suit is full of attacks, but offers no constructive remedies.”


Sen. John McCain details Valley-wide lake project at ASU

(08/26/17 1:07am)

ASU students will soon have an opportunity to work on a large-scale project that could bring Tempe Town Lake’s economic benefits to the rest of the Valley. The Rio Salado Project 2.0 aims to build similar bodies of water in towns from Mesa to Goodyear, in order to bolster local economies and provide more access to natural resources. U.S. Senator John McCain outlined the University-led initiative at an event in the W. P. Carey School of Business on Friday. The event was McCain’s second ASU stop of the week; he made an appearance at the Polytechnic campus Wednesday to deliver a keynote speech about cybersecurity. McCain has been invested in the idea of expanding water access for years, but a similar initiative he pushed 20 years ago failed to gain traction due to a lack of community support. He said that this version of the idea — which will be managed by ASU — will be an opportunity to mirror the success of Tempe Town Lake in other areas. “Anybody who, as I did, drives by Tempe Town Lake knows exactly what Rio Salado can do,” McCain said. “One of the reasons why it was defeated is we didn’t have the kind of groundwork and the kind of proposal, and frankly, the kind of success stories that Tempe Town Lake represents.”
