CSU students could pay more
FORT COLLINS (AP) Full-time Colorado State University students could see their costs increase 20 percent annually under a plan to offset possible state budget cuts.
Colorado State has filed a proposal with the state to adjust tuition by raising the threshold for full-time students from 10 credit hours to 12. The Coloradoan reports that would cost them an extra $525 per semester.
A second proposal would charge students more for classes that are more expensive to teach.
The university expects to lose $16.6 million next year as stimulus dollars dry up, a gap it plans to help cover with a 9 percent tuition increase. Spokesman Brad Bohlander said Tuesday that the two new proposals would be considered instead of a tuition increase if the state cuts funding even further.
Brewer opposes Mexicos court filing

Mexico and 10 other Latin American countries were granted permission by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to present their viewpoints.
Brewers lawyers told the appeals court that the opinions of foreign countries has no bearing on whether the law is constitutional.
