Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act.  Sets forth enabling legislation for the restructuring of public institutions of higher education (institutions) that will extend, upon the satisfaction of various conditions, autonomy, which includes but is not limited to, capital building projects, procurement and personnel, while providing oversight mechanisms and establishing certain expectations.  Under the bill, three levels of autonomy will be available to all public institutions of higher education with the level of autonomy depending on each institution's financial strength and ability to manage day-to-day operations.  The bill also requires such institutions to develop six-year academic, financial and enrollment plans that outline tuition and fee estimates as well as enrollment projections, to develop detailed plans for meeting statewide objectives, and to accept a number of accountability measures, including meeting benchmarks related to accessibility and affordability.  The Governor is required to submit his recommendations for the third level of autonomy as part of the budget bill or amendments to the budget bill for review and approval by the General Assembly.
