A new law allows certain students without legal immigration status, including honorably discharged veterans, access to institutional aid to attend a state public higher education institution. The act extends eligibility to these students if they meet certain residency, age, and criminal history requirements and file with the institution an affidavit about their intent to legalize their immigration status.
The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 30 to 5, with one absent. It passed the House by a vote of 91 to 59.
