A controversial bill that would allow Oregon students brought to the U.S. illegally to pay in-state tuition is advanced by the Senate Education Committee. Under the measure, undocumented high school seniors who have lived in the state for the last three years would be able to pay in-state tuition at Oregon's seven public universities, rather than out-of-state tuition, which is three times higher. Opponents say Oregon should not have to bear the burden of giving a tuition break to students who are in the country illegally. The measure now goes to the full Senate.
