Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Eastern Virginia Medical School; emergency. Revises the legal name of the Medical College of Hampton Roads to be consistent with its commonly accepted popular name, i.e., "Eastern Virginia Medical School" and strengthens and modernizes the school's authorities and status. This bill clarifies that (i) the board of visitors take office of July 1 of the appointment year; (ii) the rector or any three members may call special meetings of the board and the board may appoint an executive committee of at least three members to transact business in the recess of the board; (iii) the school may operate and own medical and health care, education, research and associated programs and establish satellite offices and facilities for such programs within or without the Commonwealth or the United States; (iv) the board of visitors has authority to contract with domestic and foreign entities for its activities; and (v) the board of visitors has authority to obtain patents, copyrights, and trademarks for intellectual properties and to administer, manage, market, transfer, and convey any interest in such intellectual properties. The bill also provides exceptions, parallel to those exceptions provided for publicly supported institutions of higher education or the publicly supported medical schools, from the prohibited contracts provisions of the conflicts of interest law, and the records disclosure and closed meeting provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. The bill reinforces the fact that the Administrative Process Act and the Public Procurement Act do not apply to Eastern Virginia Medical School, which, although established in law, is not a state-owned institution of higher education. This bill also includes numerous technical amendments to change the institution's legal name in the enabling chapter and the Code and to update the language of the enabling chapter. This bill is identical to SB 35.
