Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Adds six legislative findings regarding community college enrollment and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Modifies the appropriations provisions and eliminates the act's general provisions that incorporated the State Budget Act and provided for the continued validity of specified 2019 legislative appropriations. Previously, appropriated an unspecified amount from the General Fund to the Community Colleges System Office (System Office) for 2020-21 to fully fund enrollment growth at the State's community colleges. Now directs the State Controller to transfer $41.5 million from the Coronavirus Relief Reserve to the Coronavirus Relief Fund (both established in SL 2020-4). Appropriates the transferred funds on a nonrecurring basis to the Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) for 2020-21 to be allocated to the System Office for enrollment growth in the State's community colleges. Makes the requirements and limitations set forth in Part I of SL 2020-4 applicable to the appropriated funds, and directs OSBM to include the funds transferred and appropriated in the report required under Section 1.7 of SL 2020-4. Maintains the act's effective date of July 1, 2020.
Changes the act's long title.
