The Dalles Kudos, Huffman
To the editor:
I am writing to thank Representative Huffman for his courageous decision to co-sponsor the recently enacted Tuition Equity Bill in the Legislature, ensuring Oregon children, though undocumented but having lived in our state for the majority of their lives, are entitled to in-state tuition.
These young people are an extremely valuable resource to our communities and their education only enhances their lives and the strength of our state. Representative Huffman stepped out of his own party’s line of non-support for a bill and took the role of leader, helping ensure the passage of the bill. His courage on this issue is commendable. I appreciate the work he is doing for us in Salem.
