Immigrant Tuition Bill Up For Another Debate In CO

Illegal immigrants and college tuition is back before the Colorado Senate, with passage appearing certain on the measure's first floor vote Friday.

The Democratic Senate has approved lowered tuition rates for the illegal immigrants before. This year's bill faces better prospects because the House is now in Democratic hands, and the Democratic governor supports the proposal.

The bill allows students at state colleges to receive in-state tuition rates regardless of their immigration status.

The change would be a dramatic turnaround for a state where lawmakers less than a decade ago barred illegal immigrants from receiving any nonemergency state benefits.
