ALBANY, N.Y. — The New York Senate is set to vote on a controversial bill that would allow students in the country illegally to get state financial aid.

The Assembly passed the Dream Act last month and included it in its budget resolutions. The Senate was poised to vote on it Monday.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan have come out in support of the bill. It had new life breathed into it when members of the Democratic breakaway group that controls the Senate with the Republicans signed on as sponsors.

The proposal includes a budget appropriation of $25 million to open up Tuition Assistance Program money for students at both public and private colleges, paying up to $5,000 a year for undergraduates at four-year institutions.
