PUBLIC UNIV-LIMIT TUITION INCR
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Creates the Tuition Increase Limitation Act. Beginning with the
1997-98 academic year, prohibits a tuition rate increase at a public
university that is greater than the lesser of (i) 5% of the tuition
rate for the preceding academic year, or (ii) the product of the
tuition rate for the preceding academic year multiplied by the rate of
inflation for the calendar year in which that academic year began.
FISCAL NOTE (Board of Higher Ed.)
If the provisions of HB 147 were in effect, tuition increases
would be limited to 3.0 percent, thus reducing tuition revenue
by approximately $4.0 million for fiscal year 1998.
STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE
In the opinion of DCCA, HB 147 fails to create a State mandate.
