Redmond's Bob Perry, who serves on the Redmond School Board -- feels the bill is misguided.
"And for starters, we should not be paying for kids college , that falls on kids and parents, not the state. And where's the money coming from? You know the Democrats want a sales tax and that's how they'll get it."
It's estimated offering free community college for Oregon high school students would cost the state between 100 and 200 million each two year budget cycle.
Perry feels the state first needs to improve its public schools-- K through 12th -- before we start looking at higher education.
