In-state tuition for immigrants opposed

Two Ohio lawmakers are proposing a measure that would overturn a recent decision by the state’s higher education chief that allows young immigrants living in the country with temporary legal status to pay in-state tuition rates at Ohio’s public colleges.

The bill’s proponents are Republican Reps. Matt Lynch, of Bainbridge Township, and Wes Retherford, of Hamilton. On Wednesday, they said the decision is egregious and will cost Ohio taxpayers millions of dollars.

Lynch says the immigrants don’t fit Ohio’s law definition of resident.

Most of the state’s two- and four-year public colleges have previously charged students who do not have permanent legal status tuition rates much higher than what other Ohio students pay.
