CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1836


Introduced by Assembly Members Quirk-Silva and McCarty

An act to add Sections 89763 and 89764 to the Education Code, relating to public postsecondary education.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1836, as introduced, Quirk-Silva. Public postsecondary education: California State University: reporting.
(1) Existing law establishes the California State University and its various campuses under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University. Existing law requires the trustees to appoint a chief executive officer, known as the Chancellor of the California State University.
Existing law authorizes the trustees to operate motor vehicle parking facilities and alternate methods of transportation for officers, students, and employees, and authorizes parking facilities to charge parking fees. Existing law requires, except as specified, that revenues received from these parking facilities be deposited into the State Treasury to the credit of the State University Parking Revenue Fund.
This bill would require the trustees to include in the California State University Five-Year Capital Plan specified information relating to the costs and usage of its parking facilities and of alternative transportation strategies considered by campuses in determining the need for those parking facilities.
(2) Existing law requires that the Trustees of the California State University control and expend all money appropriated for the support and maintenance of the university.
This bill would require the Office of the Chancellor to, on or before November 30 of each year, report to the Legislature the current balance and projections of the surplus the California State University has accumulated for discretionary spending on operations and instruction, and an estimate of how much tuition has contributed to the surplus.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
