Illegal immigrants college bill moves to the House

DENVER (AP) - A bill that would allow illegal immigrants in Colorado to attend college at a discounted tuition rate is moving on in the House.

The bill is moving on to another House committee after the House Education Committee narrowly approved it Monday. The measure could run into more opposition later in the Republican-led House, where a similar measure failed last year.

The proposal would let illegal immigrants who graduate from Colorado high schools attend college at a rate lower than the out-of-state price but slightly higher than the in-state rate. The students must sign an affidavit saying they are seeking legal status.

The bill has already passed the Democratic-led Senate.
