OLYMPIA — Kimberly Aleman was brought to the United States from Mexico by her parents when she was 3 years old. Now in her second quarter at Yakima Valley Community College, she is allowed to apply for a state need grant for the first time, under a law that takes effect Thursday.

The law, officially called the “Real Hope Act” but also known as the Washington Dream Act, expands state financial aid for college students in the country without legal status. It’s one of about 200 new laws that take effect this week.
