BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's House has endorsed limits on the growth of college student fees and greater disclosure of how the money is spent.

Fargo Rep. Joe Heilman (HYL'-man) says mandatory fees for college students are growing as rapidly as tuition, but they don't get the same scrutiny.

The bill says the Board of Higher Education has to publish information on its website about the fees charged by North Dakota's 11 public colleges.

The information has to include how the fees are spent. The bill also limits the growth of fees during the next two years to give the Legislature time to study the issue.

Representatives approved the bill 92-0 on Friday. It now returns to the Senate for additional work.
