AN ACT CONCERNING CHARTER OAK STATE COLLEGE IN THE CONNECTICUT AID TO PUBLIC COLLEGE STUDENTS GRANT PROGRAM

SUMMARY: Under prior law, the Board of Governors of Higher Education had to base its annual appropriation request for the Connecticut Aid to Public College Students (CAPCS) grant program for Charter Oak State College on Charter Oak's fee waiver set-aside in the previous fiscal year. This act requires the board to base the request on the fee waiver set-aside in the fiscal year two years before the fiscal year in which the appropriation applies. This conforms the law to the board's annual CAPCS appropriation request for the other higher education constituent units.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2008
