Committee favors repeal of immigrant tuition law:
A law allowing some undocumented immigrants to pay resident tuition would be repealed under a bill recommended today by a House committee.

The 12-8 vote for a bill to repeal the 2004 law represented a dramatic turnaround from last week when the committee defeated the measure on an 11-11 tie vote.

But House Speaker Doug Mays, R-Topeka, an opponent of the tuition break, asked the House Federal and State Affairs Committee to have another vote.
This is a bad bill and it died the death it deserved. Call your state legislator and give them a spanking.
