“Microsoft subsidy bill” passes in WA state for children of H-1B visa holders

My Seattle Times colleague Lornet Turnbull wrote a story today about a “Microsoft subsidy bill” that the Washington state legislature passed granting in-state tuition rates for children of foreign professionals.

It was dubbed the Microsoft subsidy bill because most of the beneficiaries are children of Microsoft workers who came to Washington state under H-1B visas.

According to the story, the bill was passed during the state budget crisis, while higher education suffered hundreds of millions in cuts, and is projected to result in revenue loss to the University of Washington of $430,000 and to Washington State University of $215,000.
