The Republican candidates for governor are making an issue of the California law that allows those who attended the state's high schools for three years and graduated in California to enroll at public colleges at in-state tuition rates -- even if the students don't have the legal right to reside in the United States. The Sacramento Bee reported that one candidate, Meg Whitman, wants the students barred from enrolling. Her opponent, Steve Poizner, wants the students to lose in-state tuition rates. While the Republican candidates have been speaking out on the issue, the Bee noted that relatively few students in the state's colleges and universities have enrolled under the law.
