Denver (AP) - A proposal to allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition is up for another vote at the state capitol.
The Senate Appropriations committee is scheduled to vote on the measure (Senate Bill 170) Wednesday. The bill previously won the backing of the Senate Education Committee, but opponents asked the full Senate to delay a vote until the Appropriations Committee could review it.
Under legislative rules, the appropriations committee must review all bills that either cost or save money for the state.
The measure would allow illegal immigrants who attend Colorado high schools to pay in-state college tuition rates. But they'd still have to pay more for college because they wouldn't get the
state stipend other Colorado students get.
