State Senate rejects NY Dream Act

The New York Senate has rejected a bill to open state financial aid to students in the country illegally.

The 30-29 vote Monday evening was short of the 32 votes needed to pass. The Senate is controlled by a coalition of Republicans and breakaway Democrats.

The Assembly passed the Dream Act last month and included it in its budget resolutions last week. Gov. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had indicated support.

The proposal included a budget appropriation of $25 million to open up Tuition Assistance Program money for students at both public and private colleges.

Opponents of the bill say it takes opportunity away from students in the country legally.
