Bill Threatens In-State Tuition for Some Utah Residents

21 February 2011 Published in Legislative Work

Despite testimony by Marina Lowe, Legislative and Policy Counsel for the ACLU of Utah, urging members to vote against it, H.B. 191 “Nonresident Tuition Waiver Amendments” passed out of the House Revenue and Taxation Committee, on Friday, February 18, with a 10 - 5 vote. It will next be debated on the floor of the Utah House of Representatives before a full vote. Please contact your Representative and encourage them to oppose this bill.
