Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Acts relating to the governance of public universities in Illinois. Beginning with the 2009-2010 academic year, provides that if a person is on active military duty and is stationed out of State, but he or she was stationed in this State immediately prior to being reassigned out of State, then the governing board of each university shall deem that person and any of his or her dependents Illinois residents for tuition purposes.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as introduced, with the following changes. Provides that the person on active military duty must have been stationed in this State for at least 3 years immediately prior (instead of immediately prior) to being reassigned out of State. Provides that the person on active military duty and his or her dependents shall be deemed Illinois residents for tuition purposes as long as that person or his or her dependent (i) applies for admission to the university within 18 months of the person on active military duty being reassigned or (ii) remains continuously enrolled at the university.
