Christie lays out objections to tuition bill



TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has spelled out his objections to an immigrant tuition bill making its way through the state Legislature.

The governor said Monday that he opposes a provision that allows students in the United States illegally to have access to tuition aid grants.

Christie also wants to strike language allowing students from out of state to qualify for in-state tuition after attending a boarding school in New Jersey. And he wants to cap eligibility with students who were in the United States as of last year.

Senate President Stephen Sweeney says Christie will get the bill “as is.” The Democrat says Christie did not voice concerns until after the bill passed the Senate budget committee in June.
