The Iowa Board of Regents discussed a plan to freeze tuition rates for undergraduate Iowans for the second year in a row.

The topic was part of a two-day meeting held in Iowa City.

In order to keep tuition the same, the public schools would need a four-percent increase in funding from the state legislature.

The Regents also discussed a plan to reduce tuition for out-of-state students to improve declining enrollment numbers at the University of Iowa law school.

The Regents are expected to take action in December.
