LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1544, as amended, Allen. Student financial aid.
Existing law establishes the 15-member Student Aid Commission as the primary state agency for the administration of state-authorized student financial aid programs available to students attending all segments of postsecondary education. Under existing law, the commission, among other things, administers the Cal Grant awards, the Assumption Program of Loans for Education, the Graduate Assumption Program of Loans for Education, and the Middle Class Scholarship Program. The commission also administers the state’s participation in the Federal Family Education Loan Program. Under existing law, the commission is required to include one representative from public, proprietary, or nonprofit postsecondary schools located in California.
This bill would make various nonsubstantive changes in a provision relating to increase the membership of the commission to 16 by adding an additional representative from public, proprietary, or nonprofit postsecondary schools located in California.
