BILL NUMBER:S6144

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
the City University of New York.

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, 2016.

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. This tuition waiver has been extended
four times since 2004. 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.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012: S.6073/A.9167 - Chapter 70
2010: S.6706/A.9789 - Chapter 190
2008: S.6897 - Chapter 293
2006: S.6742 - Chapter 150
2004: S.1531-B/A.3266-B - Chapter 548

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
