State Senate Passes In-State Tuition Bill with Bipartisan Support
DENVER - Illegal immigrants are a step closer to being granted in-state tuition in Colorado. The state Senate gave final approval to the idea Monday with the support of the first Republicans in the chamber ever to agree to the tuition measure. Three members of the GOP voted for the bill. It passed without debate with a 23-12 vote. The bill will allow Colorado residents to receive in-state tuition rates regardless of immigration status. It now heads to the Democratic House for a vote.
