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.
