senatefloorUnivision featured a story on legislation Majority Caucus Whip Iris Y. Martinez passed out of the Illinois Senate that would make undocumented students eligible to compete for state-based financial aid.

Known as the Student Access Bill, Martinez’s proposal would help 1,500 students from Illinois’ public universities receive new scholarship opportunities.

The Student Access Bill is being supported by public universities, business and civic leaders, faith-based leaders, labor unions and nonprofit organizations.
