Balto. County Council Members Support Tuition Petition

June 8, 2011

A majority of the Baltimore County Council plans to issue a statement as early as Thursday morning expressing support for a petition that seeks to halt a new state law giving discounted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, according to Republican Todd Huff.

Republican David Marks said he has already signed the petition.

Huff said he is “strongly opposed” to the bill and supports efforts to put the issue to a referendum.

“I do feel it’s going to have an economic impact on local jurisdictions,” he said. “We depend on tuition to help fund our community college. Where they lack the funds, we have to supplement, and in these economic times that’s not good.”
