Broader Immigrant Tuition Proposed

Illegal immigrants who grow up in Colorado could be eligible for in-state tuition, not a compromise in-between tuition rate. That's what Colorado Democrats are set to propose this week now that they've gained full control over the state Legislature.

Democrats say they will drop a compromise tuition proposal made last year to seek a tuition rate higher than those for in-state students but lower than out-of-state levels.

The Democrats' proposal failed last year because of Republican opposition. Now Democrats say they're dropping the compromise and will seek in-state tuition rates for all Colorado residents regardless of citizenship.

Coloradans would still need to be citizens to receive state financial aid.

The tuition proposal was to be announced Tuesday.
