While some talk about a federal "Dream Act," the California legislature has passed this week its own "California Dream Act," which would allow "undocumented" students to achieve certain types of financial aid from the state:

The California Dream Act, SB 1 (Cedillo) allows U.S. citizen and undocumented AB 540 students to apply for community college fee waivers and eligible for the Cal Grant which can be applied at

California colleges and universities. However, SB 1 specifically excludes students from the Competative Cal Grant Program.
An earlier "California Dream Act" was vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger (R). Will he sign this newer version?
