Oregon will allow some undocumented immigrants to get in-state college tuition rates.

Governor John Kitzhaber signed the Tuition Equity Bill yesterday in a packed room at the state Capitol.

The law gives undocumented immigrant students in-state tuition rates if they meet a few requirements.

Some of those include attending high school in Oregon for at least three years and showing proof of intent to become a U-S citizen.

Supporters who attended the bill's signing ceremony celebrated the change.

The bill goes into effect this summer, which means students will pay in-state tuition rates at the start of the new school year.

What are your thoughts on this new law?
