Bill Caption

Relating to student success-based funding recommendations for certain continuing workforce education courses offered by public junior colleges.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 66 would make changes to considerations the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board must take into account when making success-based funding recommendations for public junior colleges offering certain continuing education courses. Specifically, the board would be required to take into consideration student success measures for continuing education courses offered by those colleges that are not credited toward a certificate or associates degree. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Without commenting on the underlying program, adding this new criteria for consideration in funding recommendations does not appear to affect our liberty principles and we remain neutral.
