AN ACT TO ESTABLISH AN EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT GOAL FOR THE STATE.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Now provides for the election of a vice chair rather than cochair of the Joint Legislative Task Force on Postsecondary Attainment (Task Force). Adds the Department of Health and Human Services to the entities the Task Force must consult in creating an inventory of existing education programs and policies to assess in determining how to facilitate the State's progress in reaching the postsecondary attainment goal set out in proposed GS 116C-10. Now permits the President Pro Tempore or the Speaker to call the first meeting of the Task Force, with subsequent meetings called by the chair (previously provided for all meetings at the call of the chair). Changes the deadline of the final report of the Task Force from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2020. Terminates the Task Force on the earlier of December 31, 2020 (was March 1, 2021), or the filing of the final report.
