Undocumented immigrants in Colorado could get a college tuition break under a measure approved by the Democratic state Senate Friday.
But the proposal's real test lies across the hall in the Republican-led House.
This year's immigrant tuition bill would allow residents who are undocumented immigrants to attend state universities at tuition rates that are higher than those for in-state students but lower than out-of-state levels. It's the sixth time Colorado lawmakers have considered some sort of immigrant tuition bill.
This year's proposal passed the Democratic Senate on a party-line vote, as it did last year.
Advocates are watching to see if the GOP House will budge on immigrant tuition.
