Colo. lawmakers debate illegal immigrant tuition

DENVER — Democratic lawmakers are making another attempt to pass a bill that would grant in-state tuition to illegal immigrants in Colorado.

The proposal would allow illegal immigrants to receive in-state tuition if they meet certain criteria, such as attending a Colorado school for at least three years and graduating from a high school in the state.

California, Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico and New York are among the states that have approved legislation allowing illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition. Colorado lawmakers tried in 2009 to pass such a bill but it was killed in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Supporters of the bill plan to talk about their efforts at the state Capitol today.
