Dreamers’ bill passes the House

April 26, 2018

I am pleased to see that my colleagues finally agreed that undocumented CT students who pay a percentage of their tuition into the financial aid pool should get a share of this aid. Under current law undocumented students are excluded from receiving aid even though they have contributed. It is a fair, bipartisan solution. I applaud everyone who came together in support of Senate Bill 4, An Act Assisting Students without Legal Immigration Status with the Cost of College, and also the dreamers that didn’t give up on their dream. The measure now goes to the governor for signature.
