Gov. Schwarznegger Vetoes In-State Tuition Bill
Late Thursday night, California Governor Arnold Schwarznegger vetoed two bills that would have expanded the eligibility of in-state tuition and financial aid benefits to illegal aliens.
Many thanks to our activists in California who have been faxing, phoning, and writing Gov. Schwarznegger and state legislators urging vetoes of the two bills. California still allows some illegal aliens to receive discounted tuition rates, but the California Supreme Court will soon hear a case that could overturn that law as well.
Also this week, both chambers of Congress adjourned for their pre-election recess. Most Members will return to their home districts and begin campaigning. It's important to note that because of your activism, not one vote on a mass amnesty bill has been cast since this Congress first convened 21 months ago.
A few weeks ago, I told you that we had 89 candidates listed as "True Reformers" on our Candidate Comparison pages. "True Reformers" are candidates who agree with NumbersUSA on most or all of our top priorities.
Since then, we've added 13 more "True Reformers" to that list, and we continue to receive new surveys on a daily basis. Take a look at some of the more notable races from across the country where we've recently identified a "True Reformer":
