Colorado measure offers in-state tuition for Indian students

Lawmakers in Colorado are considering HB1124, a bill that would offer in-state tuition for members of federally recognized tribes with ties to the state.

The bill would help members of 48 tribes with historical connections to Colorado. They would qualify for in-state tuition at all public institutions.

The House Education Committee approved the bill by a 9-4 vote. It needs to be considered by another committee before heading for a vote in the House.
