OLYMPIA, Wash. – Students brought to Washington state illegally as children will soon be able to get college financial aid.
Legislation that passed in the state House yesterday now goes to Governor Jay Inslee, who strongly supports the measure.
Representative Zack Hudgins, a Tukwila Democrat, sponsored the Dream Act.
The bill is the first to pass both chambers of the legislature this session.
Washington will become the fourth state in the country to approve state financial aid for college students in the country illegally.
