The Maryland Senate has a bill to lower tuition for college students, who are in this country illegally, whose parents or guardians are taxpayers. S.B. 41 would offer in-state tuition to college students who attended state schools for two previous years, if their parents pay taxes and the students apply for permanent residency when applicable.

The bill was introduced by Sen. David Harrington (D-Prince George’s); it has been sent to the Senate Budget and Taxation’s Health, Education, and Human Resources Subcommittee. A hearing is scheduled March 17.
The Maryland Association of Community Colleges has historically supported this concept; the bill has repeatedly been defeated in earlier legislative sessions and probably will face a similar fate this year.

This bill needs to get killed!!! Why would legislators from any state want to help illegals get the upper hand on our own citizens in the workforce? If I lived in MD, I'd probably move, just knowing that this bill is actually being considered.

The economic recession will likely put a halt to that stupidity.

Agreed. They just keep adding a line or two to the same bills and dragging them out for defeat. You would think by now they'd have a clue.

That, and the outraged citizens. As a resident of Maryland, I assure you, this is but a pipe dream for illegals.
