The Florida Senate today is expected to pass a bill that would allow some illegal immigrant students to pay in-state tuition rates at colleges and universities. 

Opponents of the bill got their chance to speak out against it on Wednesday. 

If approved by the Senate, it would have to pass through the state House again, because of changes made to the bill.  Governor Rick Scott is then expected to sign it. 

The legislative session is scheduled to end on Friday.
