Business Group Wants Affordable Education

Leaders of a major state business organization are looking for ways to make education more affordable to DREAMers.  Back in 2006, Arizona voters passed a law to deny young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children in state tuition at state universities and community colleges.  Supporters making the case that taxpayers shouldn't subsidize those who wouldn't be legally able to work in the country.  

According to the Arizona Capitol Times, President of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Glenn Hammer, thinks there may be some wiggle room.  Though he would like to see federal legislative action, Hammer believes there is a legislative fix for less than full state tuition that complies with law.  

He says the plan B is if the law cannot be tweaked and Congress fails to act the issue could be brought back to Arizona voters.
