On April 24, 2012, Rep. Mark Waller and Sen. Mary Hodge introduced HB 12-1350 – Concerning In-State Tuition Classification for Dependents of Members of the Armed Forces. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
The bill allows an institution of higher education to establish a policy that grants in-state tuition classification to a dependent of an active duty member of the United States armed forces if the dependent enrolls in the institution and graduated from a high school outside of Colorado, so long as the dependent completed at least two years at a high school in Colorado within five years prior to enrollment in the institution. On April 26, the State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee approved the bill and moved it to the floor of the House for consideration on 2nd Reading.
Since this summary, the bill passed second and third readings in the House and was introduced to the Senate in the State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee, where it was unamended and put on the consent calendar for the Senate Committee of the Whole.
