Attempting to Overturn the CA Dream Act

California's initiative process rolls along, this time trying to undo a recent law:
Opponents of a new law that allows illegal immigrants to receive college financial aid were given the green light to begin collecting signatures for a referendum to overturn the measure, Secretary of State Debra Bowen's office announced today...

Assembly Bill 131, written by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, will allow undocumented immigrant college students who already qualify for in-state tuition rates to receive state-funded financial aid, including Cal Grants. Qualified students must have attended California high schools for at least three years and graduated.

At some point will someone please introduce liberals to the concept of a spreadsheet? I do not understand how liberals at every level of government can continue to mandate costly agenda driven measures when THERE IS NO MONEY TO PAY FOR THEM.
