Senator Elliot has proposed bill SB915 which would give in state tuition rates to undocumented immigrants.

THE POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ACT OF 2013.

They would be eligible to pay the in-state tuition rate at any state-supported institution of higher education

A student without documented immigration status shall file an affidavit with the state-supported institution of higher education stating that the student has intent to legalize his or her immigration status.

Senator Elliot also introduced SB1053 which is making its way through the senate.

SB1053 TO PROHIBIT CERTAIN INQUIRIES INTO A PERSON'S BACKGROUND ON AN APPLICATION FOR PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT.

A public employer shall not inquire into or consider the criminal record or criminal history of an applicant for public employment prior to the applicant's completion of the interview by the public employer.

Seems to me the employer would want that information on the application and be able to do a criminal history check if needed before an interview.
