BILL NUMBER:S2417

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to the capital costs of Medgar
Evers college

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
An act to amend the education law, in relation to the capital costs of
Medgar Evers college; and to repeal paragraph (ii) of subdivision E
of section 6221 of such law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Out of City University schools, Medgar Evers is the only senior
college whose capital projects are not funded by the State. Medgar
Evers' operational funding was restored to senior college status in
1994; however, because the capital funding formula was not adjusted
to comply with that of other senior colleges, Medgar Evers must
continue to compete for capital dollars from the considerably smaller
pool of funds allocated to the community colleges. Medgar Evers is
further put at a disadvantage because an allocation of capital
dollars to the community colleges from the State does not necessarily
assure that the city will match those dollars. It is only fair that
Medgar Evers be treated as an equal among the other CUNY schools by
receiving capital funding that is calculated by the same formula.
