Texans can prepay for college again

AUSTIN (AP) - Once again, Texas parents can lock in current college tuition rates and start paying - even if their would-be graduates are infants.

Comptroller Susan Combs announced the Texas Tuition Promise Fund on Wednesday and opened enrollment to all Texans.

The plan allows parents to start paying undergraduate tuition and required fees for their children's future education.

The latest plan is an incarnation of the Texas Tomorrow Fund, which has been closed to new participants since 2003.
