BILL NUMBER:S6373

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 548 of the laws of 2004, amending the education law
relating to certain tuition waivers for police officer students of the
city university of New York, in relation to extending the provisions of
such chapter

PURPOSE:
This bill continues for 2 years, a tuition waiver for one
course for police officer students in baccalaureate or higher degree
programs at CUNY.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill amends chapter 548 of the
laws of 2004 which required the Board of Trustees of the City
University of New York (CUNY) to promulgate regulations to permit
members of the New York City Police Department who are enrolled in
programs leading to a baccalaureate or higher degree at CUNY, to take
one Course without tuition, on a space available basis, provided that
the course is related to their employment as a police officer.

Section 2 of the bill creates an expiration date of July 1, 2014.

JUSTIFICATION:
The original bill (chapter 548 of
2004) was based on a
tuition waiver program sponsored by John Jay College of Criminal
Justice during the late 1970s through the 1980s. It provides a strong
incentive for police officers to pursue higher education by
authorizing a tuition wavier for one course for police officer
students at CUNY.

S.6706/A.9789 - Chapter 190 of 2010.
S.7621 - Chapter 293 of 2008.
S.6742 - Chapter 150 of 2006.
S.1531B - Chapter 548 of 2004.
