Support the NYS DREAM Act and include it in the Senate's budget resolution

This petition had 70 supporters


The New York State Assembly has included $25 million in its budget proposal to fund the New York State DREAM Act, a bill which would provide equal access to tuition assistance for young undocumented immigrants going to college in New York. The Senate did not include this amount in its budget bill, and Governor Cuomo has remained silent since the bills introduction in 2011. We need to urge Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos to follow the Assembly’s lead by supporting the NYS DREAM Act and including it in the Senate's budget resolution!
