BATON ROUGE- Two bills that would take lawmakers out of setting college tuition rates has advanced in the Louisiana House.

The House Education Committee approved a bill that would allow boards for the state's four public college systems to increase tuition and fee amounts under a policy that would be established by the Board of Regents.

A second bill approved by the House and Governmental Affairs Committee would take a different approach.

That measure would spell out in the Louisiana Constitution that college tuition and fee increases don't require a legislative vote.

Both bills now head to the full House for debate.
