[GOV]GOVERNOR PENCE SIGNS RESIDENT TUITION BILL
Start Date: 5/7/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/7/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Indianapolis, IN - Governor Mike Pence today signed a bill that will allow certain students who were already pursuing college degrees to complete their degrees at the resident tuition rate.

 

"Hoosiers believe in the rule of law and in compassion. The legislation I signed today gives a handful of young women and men who have already enrolled in college the opportunity to finish what they started," said Pence. "I am grateful to the members of both parties for their willingness to address this situation in a manner that reflects Hoosier values."

 

The enactment of Senate Enrolled Act 207 will allow approximately 200-300 undocumented students who had enrolled in an Indiana state college or university prior to July 1, 2011 to pay in-state tuition rates. Under this law, those students are now exempt from provisions governing in-state tuition rates in Public Law 171-2011, passed during the legislative session in 2011. SEA 207 passed the Senate with a vote of 35-15 and the House with a vote of 70-30.

 

Senators Jean Leising (R), Carlin Yoder (R) and Earline Rogers (D) authored the legislation. Frank Mrvan (D), Greg Taylor (D), John Broden (D) and Lonnie Randolph (D) co-authored it. Representatives Rebecca Kubacki (R) sponsored and Mara Candelaria-Reardon (D) co-sponsored the legislation.
