WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Madeleine Dean, along with vice chair of the House Education and Labor Committee, Congressman Andy Levin, and House Democratic colleagues re-introduced the America’s College Promise Act to create new partnerships with state governments and provide two years of tuition-free access to community college programs that lead to a degree or industry-recognized credential. The proposal would also create a new grant program to provide pathways to success at minority serving institutions.
