Md. Senators Tweak Immigrant Tuition Bill

Maryland state senators made a series of changes to a bill that would allow the children of illegal immigrants pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities.

Members of the State Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee voted to clean up the plan to grant illegal immigrants the same tuition rates at state-run universities that Maryland residents pay.
 
The full Senate was to begin debating the bill Wednesday morning.
 
The committee voted last week to require that illegal immigrants attend community college before they receive the in-state break at four-year universities, but questions of county residency forced them into the last-minute work session.
 
Although the committee sent the measure to the Senate last week, supporters opted to do the rework in committee where it faces less opposition.
