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. Expect fireworks. Marich dubbed Morgan and the four Senate democrats who joined the GOP caucus to defeat SB 170 the "Dream Killer Five" in a piece posted at Huffington Post.
The state companion to the federal DREAM Act that would have provided college tuition equity to undocumented Colorado high school graduates was lost on a 18-16 vote on second reading, reports Hank Lacey at Colorado Capitol Journal. Five democrats joined with the Republican minority to halt SB 170.
