UNDATED - Education leaders want to change the way state universities raise tuition.

A panel that is looking to revamp Louisiana's public college system suggested that lawmakers give up the majority of their authority over tuition hikes.

Right now any increases are voted on by the legislature.

The group wants the universities to set their own tuition hikes.
