Democratic Policies That Get the Votes
New York lawmakers on Tuesday refused to advance a bill that would have provided free college tuition to the families of military personnel from the state that were killed in the line of duty.
The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 to hold the bipartisan bill, effectively ending its chances of making it to a floor vote this session. The move comes a week after lawmakers passed a $175 billion state budget that included $27 million to provide college tuition aid for undocumented immigrants.
