ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A panel discussion will examine from several perspectives a proposal to make public college tuition-free for New Yorkers.

The Empire Center and Manhattan Institute are co-hosting Monday’s two-hour discussion of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal.

Planning to offer their perspectives are: Manhattan Institute fellow Beth Akers; Mary Beth Labate, the president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, and Marc Cohen, president of the State University of New York’s Student Assembly.

Cuomo’s proposal would pay the difference between financial aid and tuition at public colleges for full-time students whose families earn $125,000 or less per year.

Monday’s discussion is scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. to noon at the Albany Institute of History and Art.
