Elimination of State Board of Education: Last Thursday, the House Education Reform Committee took testimony on House Joint Resolution M (Kelly), which would eliminate the State Board of Education and make the State Superintendent subject to gubernatorial appointment. HJR M would also strike language mandating a board that oversees community colleges, which has not existed in several decades. Kelly has stated his intent to hold a committee vote on HJR M this coming week.

 

TIF Consolidation: This coming Thursday, the Senate Economic Development and International Investment Committee will take testimony on Senate Bill 393 (Horn). The bill would consolidate several tax increment finance authorities into a single act.

 

Federal Student Loan Disclosure: State Representative Tom Albert has introduced House Bill 5071, which would require all public and private colleges and universities to provide students with information about their total loans, estimated monthly payment amounts, and their estimated total payoff for student loans. Several other states have already implemented similar legislation. HB 5071 was referred to the House Education Reform Committee.
