LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2427, as amended, Butler. California State University: special session fees.
Existing law establishes the California State University, under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law requires certain fees to be required of, and collected from, students enrolled in each special session, pursuant to rules and regulations prescribed by the Board of Trustees of the California State University.
This bill would require changes to those fees to be publicly noticed, heard, and approved by the board of trustees information on special session programs and fees to be annually reported to the board of trustees at a publicly noticed meeting of the board of trustees, and require the report to include, but not be limited to, specified information. The bill also would require the California State University, commencing on July 1, 2014, and each July 1 thereafter until January 1, 2019, to provide a report including specified information to the Legislature on the California State University Extended and Continuing Education Program.
