Gov. Dave Heineman last week announced an agreement between the University of Nebraska and Nebraska State College System that would allow for a two-year tuition freeze and increase state funding for the schools.

Heineman said his proposed two-year budget would increase the University of Nebraska's state funding to $541 million from $498 million in 2015 and increase the state college system's funding to just under $50 million from $45.5 million in 2015.
