Maine Lawmaker Wants to Expand Free Tuition Plan for Guard

AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Senate President Mike Thibodeau wants to expand a program that allows National Guard personnel to attend state colleges and universities tuition-free.

Last year, a 100 percent tuition waiver went into effect for National Guard members who attend University of Maine System and Maine Community College System schools.

Thibodeau said he wants to build on that to include private schools.
