Senate Set For Midweek Debate On Immigrant Tuition

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A bill allowing children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges is scheduled to be taken up by the state Senate in the middle of the week.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said Monday night he’s expecting a great deal of debate and a lot of proposed amendments to the legislation.

Miller, D-Calvert, says the bill will come up on Wednesday. He says the Senate could have two sessions on that day, because of the length of debate.

The measure would require children of illegal immigrants to graduate from a community college or receive an associate’s degree before they could get in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges.
