Today (February 25, 2009) the Utah House defeated Rep. Richard Greenwood's- (R) Roy - HB 208 "Modification of Exemption from Nonresident Tuition".  This legislation would have limited exemptions from nonresident tuition to those not employed or not earning income in the US without federal approval. 

This legislation would have made an already expensive education even more so for numerous children of immigrant families by denying them the ability to work while they make their way through college.  The vote in the House was 34 yea votes to 40 nay votes.  To see the vote tally and who supported/opposed this legislation, click here.
