first_img16Aug Rep. Noble’s bill limits tuition grants to legal residents only Legislator: No state taxes should aid illegal immigrants State Rep. Jeff Noble today introduced legislation to limit state-funded tuition grants to students legally residing in the United States.Noble, of Plymouth, said he introduced the bill as part of a sweeping legislative package to limit the use of taxpayer money to legal residents only.“Grant money for college tuition is limited as it is, and we want to ensure that the money entrusted to us by hard-working taxpayers is being used only to help people legally residing in the United States get a college education,” Noble said. “I encourage legal immigration and welcome people from other nations to Michigan, but we should not spend taxpayer money on people who are living here illegally.”Noble’s legislation is part of a multi-bill package that prevents illegal residents in Michigan from eligibility for scholarships involving state funds and housing assistance through a state agency.“It’s simple common sense that funds provided by Michigan families should be used to support legal citizens only,” Noble said.The bills were referred to the House Appropriations Committee.#####The bills is House Bill 4860center_img Categories: News,Noble Newslast_img
