LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 960, Rubio. California State University: campus-based mandatory 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 the state. Existing law authorizes the trustees by rule to require all persons to pay fees, rents, deposits, and charges for services, facilities, or materials provided by the trustees to those persons.
This bill would prohibit specified California State University campus-based mandatory fees from being reallocated without an affirmative vote of the majority of the members of either the student body or a specified campus fee advisory committee voting on the fee reallocation, unless the vote that established the fee authorizes an alternative or automatic reallocation mechanism for that fee.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 89711 is added to the Education Code, to read:

89711.
 (a) Except as provided for in subdivision (b), a California State University campus-based mandatory fee established through an affirmative vote of the majority of the student body voting on the fee, but not specifically authorized by statute, shall not be reallocated without an affirmative vote of a majority of the members of either the student body or a campus fee advisory committee established under the policies of the California State University voting on the fee reallocation.
(b) A California State University campus-based mandatory fee established through an affirmative vote of the majority of the student body voting on the fee, but not specifically authorized by statute, may be reallocated without an affirmative vote of a majority of the members of either the student body or a campus fee advisory committee voting on the fee if the vote that established the fee authorized an alternative or automatic reallocation mechanism for that fee.
(c) This section shall not apply to campus-based fees approved prior to the enactment of this section.
