Texas- You may soon be able to get a bachelor's degree in Texas for just $10,000.

The state's higher education chief is backing Governor Rick Perry's plan to make higher education more affordable.

The next step is finding colleges interested in offering an inexpensive, but quality degree.

The Texas higher education chief is asking for proposals from schools to be sent in by early 2013.
