LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1491, as introduced, McCarty. Public postsecondary education: educational equity.
Existing law states the intent of the Legislature that public higher education strive to provide educationally equitable environments that give each Californian, regardless of age, economic circumstance, or certain specified characteristics, a reasonable opportunity to develop fully their potential.
