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.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
