Really? We're going to do this again? The state provides a pathetic 6% of UVA's funding, and now it's going to try to micromanage how universities can take in money?

Dean J writes:

A line in the full text that isn't in the summary that might be of interest:

"Any dollars lost by an institution as a result of this requirement shall be recovered by increasing charges to out-of-state students."

IT writes:

Like Waldo said, we're doing this again? UVA gets at most 8% of its funding from the state. With that in mind, we still think it's a good idea to have the state gov't reach out a controlling arm to harm the prestige of this institution by decreasing the number of out of state (domestic and international) students on grounds? Clearly Delegate Hugo does not realize the value of being able to learn from different international and domestic perspectives and experiences - the potential votes of his constituents whose children (albeit unfortunately) cannot make it into UVA and want that to change are clouding his judgment
