Relating to authorization by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for certain public junior colleges to offer baccalaureate degree programs.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 4165 would allow a public junior college that offers a baccalaureate degree program and that is located in a county with a population of more than 1,700,000 and located within 180 miles of the Texas-Mexico border (Bexar County) to offer a maximum of six baccalaureate degree programs at any time. Additionally, South Texas College would be prohibited from offering more than six baccalaureate programs at a time.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 4165 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
