A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
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.
