(Phoenix, AZ) -- Arizona Governor Doug Ducey is at odds with his attorney general when it comes to state university tuition. Governor Ducey tells the Arizona Capitol Times that the state's university's are in compliance with constitutional requirements to keep instruction “as nearly free as possible.” Ducey says lawmakers have been forced to make big cuts in higher education funding in recent years. And he believes the Board of Regents is doing the best it can to keep tuition down. He went on to say that the issue should not be decided by a lawsuit. Attorney General Mark Brnovich has recently filed suit against the Board of Regents for allowing tuition rates to skyrocket. He claims its unconstitutional. Brnovich believes the board has to set tuition based on the actual cost of instruction and that cuts in state funding should not figure into the equation.
