One student was arrested and a dozen others escorted out of the Georgia State Senate today as they protested cuts to a state scholarship program.

The Georgia State students, affiliated with the activist group Georgia Students for Public Higher Education, were protesting House Bill 326, which would dramatically scale back Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program. Earlier they had demonstrated against HB 326 and House Bill 59, a law that would ban undocumented students from Georgia’s state universities and colleges.

HB 326 passed the Senate in a party-line vote after the students were removed.
