Missouri Legislature Looks At Blocking Portions of A+ Scholarships
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The status of legislation to block scholarships and financial aid for Missouri students whose parents brought them illegally to the U.S. is being disputed. Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed one bill to stop the state's A+ Scholarship from going to those students. But the Republican-led Legislature could overturn Nixon's action in a September session. The scholarship pays for two years of tuition at community colleges for students who meet certain grade and community service criteria.
