Immigrant Tuition Bill May Face Challenge in KS Senate

An effort to repeal a law that gives illegal immigrants a tuition break has passed the House, but may face a challenge in the Senate. The bill would repeal a 2004 Kansas law that allows some undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at Kansas colleges and universities. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican, says it hasn’t been the top issue for many senators.

Emler says a projected budget deficit has been his top issue. For more on the debate over the immigrant tuition law, tune in later this hour.
