Thank you, Colorado Legislators, for passing SB 33 and helping more students attend college

On Friday, the House of Representatives approved Senate Bill 33, the legislation that will make it possible for an undocumented student to attend college in Colorado at the in-state tuition rate. The House was the last stop for the bill before it lands on Governor Hickenlooper’s desk for his signature.

All the Democrats in the both the Senate and the House voted for the bill, along with six Republicans. We ask CEA members to thank all the legislators who voted for the bill, with special appreciation to these Republicans: Sens. Larry Crowder (Alamosa), Owen Hill (Colorado Springs), and Greg Brophy (Wray); Reps. Cheri Gerou (Evergreen), Kevin Priola (Henderson), and Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff (Pueblo). You can find all legislators’ email addresses and web sites in the General Assembly’s Legislative Directory.

Watch for news about Governor Hickenlooper’s plans for signing SB 33.
