State may cut off some Oregon Promise grants

The Oregon Promise soon may not be available to students from wealthier families.

The program approved by lawmakers two years ago allows students to attend community college for nearly free, after scholarships and grants are subtracted from the tuition bill.

Lawmakers have budgeted $40 million for the program during the next two years — $8 million less than officials say is needed to pay for it, The Oregonian reported.
