WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the White House released a Fiscal Year 2017 budget proposal that includes two free years of community college, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) this week met with Ohio members of the Association of Community College Trustees – a group composed of community college presidents and members of their administrations.

The group discussed the crucial role that community colleges play in workforce development and the importance of making higher education more accessible.

Brown is a cosponsor of the America’s College Promise Act – legislation that would make two years of community college free, providing a pathway to a four-year degree.

“Ohio’s community colleges continue to provide our students with a quality, first-class education,” said Brown. “Making community college free will help ensure that all Ohioans have the opportunity for success.”
