The New York State DREAM Act took a major step forward this week when the four members of the State Senate’s Independent Democratic Conference joined as sponsors of the bill. The New York DREAM Act makes TAP funding available to New York high school grads attending college in state regardless of their immigration status.

The New York State Senate is divided into three caucuses, the Democrats, Republicans and the Independent Democrats. The Independents have been sharing leadership with the Republican minority in the Senate.
