Senator not surprised by illegals bill vote

author Published by Chris Chmielenski

Colorado state Sen. Ted Harvey said he wasn’t surprised to learn that a key vote on a bill to grant in-state tuition to illegal immigrants had been rescheduled after he went out of town to care for an Alzheimer’s-afflicted relative in deteriorating health.

Mr. Harvey, a Republican, had planned to vote against Senate Bill 170 when it came up at the Friday committee hearing. After Mr. Harvey flew to Florida on Tuesday morning, however, Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee moved up the vote to Wednesday. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/03/senator-not-surprised-illegals-bill-vote/By Valerie Richardson — Washington Times
