Sign the Dream Act Petition

I found a link to an online petition to have the Governor sign the California Dream Act SB 1301. This is the version of the Dream Act which would help AB 540 college students qualify for financial aid. The bill passed on August 31 and has been waiting for him to sign it or deny it. In what has become an annual rite, the Assembly also passed a measure by Sen. Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles), SB 1301, to allow illegal immigrant students to receive financial aid at state universities. Schwarzenegger has twice vetoed similar legislation, saying it would siphon financial aid from students whose parents obeyed immigration laws. The wording for the bill has been changed because in previous times the Governor said that the bill would take away much needed money from the state. Those issues have been addresses and the Governor should have no reason to not pass it anymore. I also got an email about the bill and some numbers people can call to urge legislators to support and help pass the bill. Go and sign it. Or don't. It's up to you.  

“MESSAGE:  Please vote for the California Dream Act SB 1301 which may be heard on the Assembly Floor today.  California needs all the educated workforce it can produce.  We should be educating all of California’s high school graduates regardless of immigration status. “
