    Bill Summary

    This bill removes the present law requirement, under the Kristen Azevedo Act, that persons applying for jobs in student housing facilities at public higher education institutions must pay for their own TBI background check. The background check will still be required.

    Under present law, an employee of the Tennessee board of regents may not elect whether to receive a separate longevity check until July 1, 2013. This bill changes present law by prohibiting issuance of separate longevity checks to board of regents employees.

    Under present law, when a governing body allows its members to attend a meeting by electronic means based upon a determination of necessity and a physical quorum is not present at such a meeting, the governing body, other than a state debt issuer, must file such determination of necessity, including with the office of secretary of state. This bill exempts the board of regents, the board of trustees of the University of Tennessee and the Tennessee higher education commission from the requirement of filing the determination of necessity with the secretary of state when such bodies allow their members to participate in a meeting by electronic means.

    This bill exempts universities and community colleges from the requirement that all state agencies that have state-owned motor vehicle fleets consisting of more than 10 motor vehicles must develop and implement plans to increase the state's use of alternative fuels, synthetic lubricants, and fuel-efficient or low-emission vehicles.

    ON APRIL 26, 2012, THE SENATE SUBSTITUTED HOUSE BILL 3665 FOR SENATE BILL 3022, ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1, AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 3665, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 requires that implementation of this bill be accomplished within the existing resources of the higher education systems.
