Governor Signs Appropriation and Fee Bills: On Monday, the Governor signed both the General Appropriation Bill (HB 2260) and SB 1305, which increases the statutory limits on certain student fees.  Both bills passed easily and are now pending action by the Governor.

 

HB 2260, the General Appropriations bill, provides $748.6 million to higher education.  This amount does not replace the $23.5 million that higher education received from the state’s Rainy Day Fund for the current fiscal year.  Replacement of these funds will be considered by the Legislature during the remaining weeks of the legislative session. HB 2260 bill text: http://www2.lsb.state.ok.us/1999-00HB/hb2260_enr.rtf

 

SB 1305 increases the statutory limitations on three student fees—library fees, facility fees, and student health care fees.  SB 1305 bill text: http://www2.lsb.state.ok.us/1999-00SB/sb1305_enr.rtf
