Full House Set to Act on Tuition Bill

The Kansas House of Representatives will take final action tomorrow on a bill that would repeal a state law allowing some illegal immigrants in Kansas to pay in-state tuition at public universities and colleges. The House passed the controversial bill 69-49 on an unrecorded vote today.

Ever since the law was enacted in 2004, critics have argued it encourages illegal immigration and is unfair to out-of-state and foreign students who pay higher tuition rates.

The State Board of Regents says 413 students enrolled under the law last fall.
