2012 ASSET Bill Killed in Colorado House Finance Committee


2012 ASSET Bill Killed in Colorado House Finance Committee

Contributed by Aaron Hall

The 2012 version of the ASSET Bill has been killed in the House Finance Committee by a 7-6 vote and will not be allowed to come up for a vote on the House Floor.  The bill would have allowed qualified undocumented students in Colorado to pay a tuition rate for state universities which is lower than the out-of-state rate but higher than the resident rate.

Thirteen states have passed laws allowing undocumented high school graduates to pay an in-state tuition rate at state universities.  According to research by a non-partisan legislative staff, 70 percent of Colorado’s undocumented students live at or below the poverty level and would not attend university at an out-of-state rate.
