Washington -- When Sen. Chris Murphy returns from his Thanksgiving break, he hopes to introduce a bill that would pressure colleges to keep tuition rates down.
It will be the 14th bill Murphy, D-Conn., has introduced since he was sworn into the Senate in January. His co-sponsor is someone with nearly as little seniority, Brian Schatz, a Democrat who was appointed to represent Hawaii in the Senate last December.
Murphy admitted it may be hard to win approval of his bill in the 113th Congress, but he said he’s looking at the long term.
