Neb. Leg. Overrides Gov. Veto, Passes In-State Tuition Bill for Undocumented

"Yesterday evening, Nebraska became the 10th state to provide instate tuition to undocumented immigrants students who have attended and graduated from its high schools. It did so in dramatic fashion, overriding Governor Dave Heineman's veto. The bill (LB239) had passed by a 26-19 margin, but needed 30 votes for an override. Somehow supporters managed to change exactly 4 votes to get the necessary 30." NILC Press Release, Apr. 14, 2006.
