The requirement to stay in the state is not unique here.

In the west where many states are not large enough to have a full suite of programs in their instate colleges, there is an interchange program where in exchange for agreeing to work some number of years in the state after graduation, the state pays down your tuition to the instate level. In both cases the restrictions are spelled out before you take the money. In the case of New York you don't have to take the money if for example you want to work in Oil and Gas exploration.
One issue I would like to know that many commenters complain about is what percentage of students outside of New York City (where everyone lives withing commuting distance of a Cuny school), live within commuting distance of a SUNY school, and thus could live at home, reducing costs greatly, although requiring a car.
There was much weeping and moaning about the plan not covering room and board, so the ratio of those who have to live away from home is a critical issue.
