Christie conditionally vetoes NJ DREAM Act

At a noon press conference it will be announced that Gov. Christie has conditionally vetoed the DREAM Act that was written to grant in-state tuition to some undocumented immigrants living in New Jersey.

But it will include in-state tuition for undocumented students, to be effective immediately.

Senate President Steve Sweeney told Blue Jersey today that he intends to keep working towards tuition assistance. But for now that provision has not survived Christie’s veto pen.

We’ll have more on this later, in a video conversation coming later with Senate President Sweeney.
