(STATEHOUSE) - A powerful legislator and the state's two biggest universities are in talks to resolve a standoff over tuition hikes.

Kenley says it's the only lever available to him to force Purdue and IU to reconsider tuition hikes at the upper reaches of recommendations from the commission for higher education.
