News: CMC's four-year plan clears first hurdleFebruary 18, 2010
A bill to make it easier for people in rural Colorado to get a four year college degree easily cleared its first hurdle at the state house, passing the senate education committee on a 7 to 1 vote. The idea is for two-year institutions, like Colorado Mountain College, to start offering four-year degrees. The strong support from lawmakers comes despite objections from the Governor's office and the state's Higher Education Department. KDNK's Bente Birkeland has more from the state house.
