Friday, February 3: Non-resident Tuition Exemptions
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – On Thursday, Utah's House Education Committee gave a favorable recommendation to House Bill 7, which would repeal in-state tuition for non-residents who attended three years of high school in Utah. Opponents to the bill say that the state can only benefit economically from better educated individuals, while supporters argue that exemptions give unfair advantage to children of undocumented workers over out-of-state US citizens. Doug talks to representatives from "Utahns for the American Dream" and Utahns for Immigration Reform and Enforcement about what the bill would mean for Utah's students.
