A bill to expand in-state tuition to all dependants of military members, including spouses of servicemen and women is moving forward in the Colorado legislature.
House Bill 1194, sponsored by Rep. Justin Everett (R-Littleton), passed the House Education Committee Wednesday.
According to a release from the Colorado House Republicans:
Colorado law already provides in-state tuition to dependents of military members who are stationed in Colorado who graduated from a Colorado high school and who enroll in a college or university within twelve months of their graduation. House Bill 1194 expands access to in-state tuition rates to all military dependents, including spouses.
The bill now moves forward to the House Appropriations Committee.
