    Bill Summary

    ON MAY 12, 2011, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 37, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 additionally removes the following annual reporting requirements:
    (1) The report by the public higher education institution to the attorney general on sponsored research or service closed to public inspection by present law regarding confidentiality of research records and materials;
    (2) The report by the Tennessee higher education commission (THEC) on the effect that off-site academic locations have on the distribution of formula funding to the main campuses, provided to the governor; the speakers of each house; the chairs of the finance, ways and means, education, and fiscal review committees; the office of legislative budget analysis; and the commissioner of finance and administration;
    (3) The reports by each four-year and two-year public postsecondary institutions, and each public state technology center, to THEC on any funds or revenues received by each institution which were not appropriated in the general appropriations act and the specific use or expenditure of such revenues or funds;
    (4) The report by THEC on the student tuition subsidy to all state institutions of higher education and to the education and finance, ways and means committees of each house. Similarly, this amendment also removes the requirement of THEC to calculate such student tuition subsidy; and
    (5) The report by each institution of higher education to THEC on student activity fees. This amendment also removes the requirement of each institution of higher education to publish a financial disclosure statement for student activity fees.

    This amendment specifies that the following office of education accountability reports would be provided "periodically," instead of "annually":
    (1) The report on the results of its review of system and school improvement plans provided to the select oversight committee on education and the education committees of each house; and
    (2) The report on the grade level, age, gender, race, offense, and disposition of each zero tolerance violation in the local school systems and any modification in penalty, provided to the education oversight committee, the general assembly, the governor and the state board of education.

    This amendment removes the requirement of the state board of education to develop and recommend to local boards of education training or notification procedures for use of two-way communications systems in those LEAs that choose to place those systems in new and renovated schools.

    Present law requires THEC to develop and adopt rules and regulations to require each institution of higher education in this state that participates in the federal Family Education Loan Program or the federal Direct Student Loan Program to reimburse the state for its proportionate share of any default cost fee charged to the state by the secretary of education under the federal Higher Education Act. The rules and regulations must provide a fee structure for determining the amount of the reimbursement for each institution. THEC must submit the fee structure and exemption process to the commissioner of finance and administration and the secretary of education for review and approval prior to implementation. This amendment removes these provisions.

    Present law requires THEC to conduct a triennial study of independent, nonprofit, degree-granting colleges and universities accredited by the College Commission of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. A report on the findings of the study must be submitted to the governor and the general assembly with a target date of December 1 of every third year, beginning in 1993. This amendment removes the requirement of THEC to conduct such study or to report such study's findings.
