|SAMPLE EMAIL FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS|
|Dear _____________ : Please support Senate Bill 1896
regarding student fees in public postsecondary education. This bill would
reduce the education and registration fees charged to resident graduate
students in the California State University system. Fees for the
1999-2000 fiscal year would be reduced by five percent below the level
charged during the 1997-98 fiscal year. Undergraduate students have already
benefited from a similar rollback in 1998 fees.
As a graduate student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, I have been delighted
by the high quality of the education provided by the CSU system. Although
tuition costs are reasonable, particularly in comparison to private institutions,
I struggle each quarter to cover the expenses of my education. I urge you
to vote "yes" on SB-1896 so that higher education will remain feasible,
accessible, and affordable for self-supporting students on moderate budgets.
Sincerely . . .
