A bill up for debate in the Vermont House this week would end the in-state tuition break for University of Vermont graduate students.

University of Vermont President Tom Sullivan has recommended that next year's tuition increase be less than 3 percent.

Sullivan's call for a limit was part of a plan he presented to the board of trustees at its meeting Wednesday.

Last fall, interim President John Bramley urged a limit of 3.5 percent on the tuition increase for 2012-2013, which was approved.

Sullivan said an increase of less than 3 percent for the 2013-2014 academic year would be the lowest jump at UVM in 36 years.
