N.J. Senate OKs In-State Tuition Rate for Immigrants


The state Senate on Monday passed a bill allowing New Jersey residents who were brought to the United States illegally as children to pay in-state tuition rates for college.

The Assembly passed a similar bill, but without a provision allowing financial aid. Incoming Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto has indicated the Assembly would amend its bill. But it’s not known whether Gov. Chris Christie would sign the legislation.
