"Taking action to expand educational opportunity to all qualified
students, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. on Saturday signed the California
Dream Act. AB 131, authored by Assemblymember Gil Cedillo (D-Los
Angeles) allows top students who are on the path to citizenship to apply
for college financial aid. “Going to college is a dream that promises intellectual excitement
and creative thinking. The Dream Act benefits us all by giving top
students a chance to improve their lives and the lives of all of us,”
said Governor Brown."
