AN ACT TO PROVIDE THAT SERVICE MEMBERS WHO SERVE ON THE USS NORTH CAROLINA SSN 777 FOR A PERIOD OF 180 DAYS OR LONGER ARE ELIGIBLE FOR IN-STATE TUITION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Deletes proposed subsection (h2) of GS 116-143.1. Instead, enacts GS 116-143.3B. Similarly to the provisions of previously proposed GS 116-143.1(h2), provides in-State tuition rates and applicable mandatory fees for enrollment for members of the US Armed Forces who served on the USS North Carolina SSN 777 for a period of 180 days or more who qualify for admission to an institution of higher education but do not qualify as a resident for tuition purposes. Maintains that the act is effective July 1, 2019, and applies beginning with the 2019-20 academic year.
