DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Board of Regents President Bruce Rastetter says tuition will be frozen at state universities for the fall semester, but he is not detailing what will happen in the spring.

At a board meeting Thursday, Rastetter said a tuition freeze would continue at the three public universities for the fall. But he said officials will need to assess if the institutions have enough state funding to maintain the freeze in the spring.

Under a compromise spending plan developed by the Republican-led House and Democratic-controlled Senate, universities will get a funding increase, but not the full $8.8 million requested to maintain a third year of tuition freezes.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal says he hopes the tuition freeze will continue in the spring.
