Immigrant In-State Tuition Bill To Be Debated

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A bill that would allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges under certain conditions will be debated in the Senate.

The Senate is likely to vote on the measure Monday night after convening for an 8 p.m. session.

The measure as amended last week would require affected students to attend community college in the jurisdiction where they went to high school before qualifying for in-state tuition rates at a four-year college or university.

Senators also amended the bill to require a student to spend three years in high school instead of two to be eligible for in-state tuition.
