Governmental Relations

Legislative Update - Monday, April 18, 2011

CSHB 1, House Appropriations Bill

CSHB 1 passed the House and was sent to the Senate for discussion and consideration. CSHB 1 decreases formula funding for the Alamo Colleges from fiscal year 2011 net state allocation of $65.3 million to $60,069,983 for fiscal year 2012 and $60,069,979 for fiscal year 2013.  CSHB 1 appropriates $99.5 million for each year of the next biennium for community college group insurance.  A rider in CSHB 1 directs the Coordinating Board to provide a report by March 1, 2012 related to dual credit student outcomes to determine the most efficient and effective delivery of dual credit courses.  The Senate will now work on its own State Appropriation bill and differences between the House and Senate version will be worked out in conference committee.

Senate Finance Subcommittee on Higher Education Funding

The subcommittee adopted the work group’s recommendation for $15 million to be set aside as incentive funding for community college Momentum Points.  The $15 million would be an incentive fund and not part of formula funding.
