Read second time 1/10/19
INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE BRANDON ELLINGTON (D): HB155 Establishes the "Make America Great Again Act" and repeals provisions that prohibit persons who are unlawfully present in the United States from receiving certain benefits
This bill establishes the "Make America Great Again Act," which prohibits denying any person any post-secondary public education benefit based on such person's citizenship or immigration status. The bill repeals provisions of law that currently require students to be citizens or permanent residents of the United States to qualify for various post-secondary education benefits, including the A+ program. The bill also repeals provisions of law that currently prohibit unlawfully present aliens from receiving state or local public benefits. This bill is similar to HB 2375 (2018).
