Colorado Regents Vote to Give Illegal Immigrants a Smaller Tuition
02/02/2012

 BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado regents have
voted 5-4 to support a bill in the Legislature that would give
illegal immigrants a tuition rate lower than the out-of-state rate
and a bit higher than the in-state rate.
     The Boulder Daily Camera reported that Regent Tillie Bishop, a
Republican from Grand Junction, joined with Democrats on the board
to support the bill.
     The other four Republicans voted against the resolution. Regents
Steve Bosley of Longmont and Jim Geddes of Sedalia said CU
shouldn't take a position until after the Legislature decides.
     A committee in the Democratic-controlled Senate gave initial
approval to the bill last week, and it's expected to pass the full
Senate.
     It faces a bigger challenge in the Republican-led House.
