    Bill Summary

    This bill removes specific references to the Tennessee Education Association in regard to permissible requests for assistance from the state board of education concerning the Volunteer Public Education Trust Fund Act and in regard to the speaker of the house's appointment to the Tennessee financial literacy commission.

    Under present law, the Volunteer Public Education Trust Fund Act (the Act) establishes a special trust fund for education in which any person, association or corporation wishing to contribute voluntarily to the special trust fund for education may do so and requires the state board of education to establish operational guidelines for the expenditure of the income from the special trust fund for education.

    Present law authorizes the state board of education to request the assistance of the Tennessee Education Association and other persons or organizations in an ongoing effort to effectuate the Act. This bill revises this provision to remove the specific reference to the Tennessee Education Association, but the state board of education would still be authorized to request the assistance of "other persons or organizations."

    Under present law, the Tennessee financial literacy commission develops, manages, and raises funds for certain educational programs such as financial literacy education programs for elementary school students and their parents and the promotion of financial literacy in college savings. The commission's board of directors is composed of 11 members including four members appointed by the speaker of the house. The speaker of the house may consider for appointment the persons recommended by the following boards:
    (1) Tennessee Bankers Association board of directors;
    (2) Tennessee Credit Union League board of directors;
    (3) Tennessee Consumer Finance Association board of directors; and
    (4) Tennessee Education Association board of directors.

    This bill removes the reference to the Tennessee Education Association board of directors in (4).
