The Colorado House passed a bill on Friday allowing undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition for state public colleges. For 10 years, the legislature has debated versions of the bill that lets students who graduate from Colorado high schools pay a lower tuition bill, regardless of their immigration status.

The bill passed 40-21 with just three Republicans joining the House Democrats, and it heads to Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) to sign.

Congratulations, Colorado. The rest of the United States needs to follow the lead.
