A Georgia Tuition Limit Amendment did not make the November 2012 ballot in Georgia as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required that any increases in institutions of the University System of Georgia tuition or fees that exceed the rate of inflation be approved by the General Assembly.[1][2]

The proposed measure was introduced by Rep. Ed Rynders.

Text of measure

Had it been certified for the ballot, voters would have been asked:[3]

Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to provide that increases in tuition and fees at institutions of the University System of Georgia shall not exceed the rate of inflation unless approved by joint resolution of the General Assembly?
