2017 - 2018 LEGISLATURE
May 8, 2017 - Introduced by Representative Skowronski, cosponsored by Senator
Petrowski. Referred to Committee on Colleges and Universities.
AB313,1,4 1An Act to repeal 38.24 (3m) (c); and to amend 38.24 (3m) (title) and 38.24 (3m)
2(a) of the statutes; relating to: resident technical college fees for individuals
3receiving benefits transferred under federal law by active duty uniformed
4service members.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under this bill, technical college districts must charge resident fees to
individuals to whom active duty uniformed service members transfer certain unused
educational benefits under federal law. Under current state law, technical college
districts must charge resident fees to “covered individuals,” as defined under federal
law, while those individuals are continuously enrolled. Before its amendment in
2016, the federal law defined “covered individual” to include individuals to whom
certain veterans transfer unused benefits. In 2016, the federal law was amended to
define “covered individual” to also include individuals to whom active duty
uniformed service members transfer unused benefits. Although current state law
uses the definition of “covered individual” under federal law, current state law
includes a provision that has the effect of prohibiting technical college districts from
charging resident fees to individuals who are covered individuals based on unused
benefits transferred by active duty uniformed service members. This bill eliminates
that provision and therefore requires technical college districts to charge resident
fees to those individuals.

For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
