No significant fiscal implication to the State.
Based on information provided by South Texas College, implementing the
provisions of the bill would be a significant cost to the institution.
Establishing and operating a new extension facility would require costs
associated with land acquisition, design of a new facility, construction
of the facility and infrastructure, technology, and ongoing
instructional, academic support, and operating costs. The institution is
unable to determine the exact cost of the extension facility without
further study. Any additional costs associated with implementing the
provisions of the bill would be funded with institutional funds.
This bill abridges the principle of limited government by creating an unfunded mandate to this community college. For this reason, we oppose HB 382.
The Senate sponsor is Senator Lucio.
