No money for college students

State regents sent a letter to college financial aid offices Tuesday stating spring payments have been suspended. They say the state does not have the $6 million they need to reimburse tuition costs for students enrolled in 'Oklahoma's Promise'.

Now Oklahoma's 'Promise" may not be kept, and officials say the lottery is to blame.

When state regents budgeted for the program, they projected the lottery and gaming commission would bring in $6 million more than it did.

The future of Oklahoma's Promise is unknown. State officials say legislators are searching for a permanent funding source.
