   An act to add Section 89013 to the Education Code, relating to the
California State University.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 24, Block. California State University: feasibility study:
Chula Vista.
   Existing law establishes the various segments of the public higher
education system in the state. These segments include the University
of California, which is administered by the Regents of the
University of California, the California State University, which is
administered by the Trustees of the California State University, and
the California Community Colleges, which is administered by the Board
of Governors of the California Community Colleges.
   This bill would require the Chancellor of the California State
University to complete and submit to the trustees a study about the
feasibility of a California State University satellite program, and
ultimately, an independent California State University campus, at
Chula Vista, within 18 months after the date that the trustees
certify that sufficient funds are available to conduct the study. The
bill would require funding for the study to be derived solely from
nonstate sources. If the trustees decide that a new campus or
off-campus center is needed at Chula Vista, the trustees would be
required to submit a formal needs study to the California
Postsecondary Education Commission.

off-campus center at Chula Vista, the trustees shall submit a formal
needs study to the California Postsecondary Education Commission
pursuant to Section 66904.
