INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Hayashi
(Coauthor: Senator Cannella)

FEBRUARY 24, 2012

An act to amend Section 68075.5 of the Education Code, relating to
public postsecondary education.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2478, as amended, Hayashi. Student residency requirements:
veterans.
Under existing law, the segments of the public postsecondary
education system in the state include the University of California,
which is administered by the Regents of the University of California,
the California State University, which is administered by the
Trustees of the California State University, and the California
Community Colleges, which are administered by the Board of Governors
of the California Community Colleges.
Existing law establishes uniform student residency requirements
for purposes of ascertaining the amount of tuition and fees to be
paid by students of public postsecondary education institutions.
Existing law entitles a student who was a member of the Armed Forces
of the United States stationed in this state on active duty for more
than one year immediately prior to being discharged from the Armed
Forces to resident classification for the length of time he or she
lives in this state after being discharged up to the minimum time
necessary to become a resident.
This bill would instead would make those
students exempt from paying nonresident tuition, and would

revise that provision for purposes of the California Community
Colleges , and would instead entitle by
making
a community college student who was a member of the
Armed Forces of the United States stationed in this state on active
duty for more than one year immediately prior to being discharged
from the Armed Forces to resident classification
exempt from paying nonresident tuition for the length of
time he or she lives in this state after being discharged up to 4
years if he or she files an affidavit with the community college
stating that he or she intends to establish residency in California
as soon as possible
, thereby imposing a state-mandated local
program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates
determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state,
reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these
statutory provisions.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.
