College enrollment is up... but some say because of a lack in state funding, Virginia's public schools cannot afford any more students.

[SUPER=04-File Tape]


The State Council of Higher Education in Virginia expects college enrollment to increase by nearly 61-thousand students by the end of the decade.
The group says the state's public colleges are underfunded.
And unless the state comes up with more money, Virginia students may be turned away.
House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith says help is already on the way.
