Sen. Carroll to defend immigrant tuition bill vote on AM760 today

Culminating a week of being beat up in the press and on the blogs, Colorado Sen. Morgan Carroll (D-Aurora) will talk with AM760 progressive radio show host Mario Solis-Marich today at 5:30 p.m. The subject of the pro-am media ire: Carroll's opposition to an in-state tuition equity for undocumented Colorado high school grads.
