The Arizona legislature has approved a Senate bill that would allow community colleges statewide to offer four-year baccalaureate degrees.
The legislation passed the senate yesterday with strong bipartisan support in a 24-to-6 vote. The bill, originally proposed by Republican State Rep. Becky Nutt, now heads to Gov. Doug Ducey’s desk to be signed into law. The support comes as President Biden proposes free 2-year programs at community college nationwide.
