        Adds provisions that require all student members of the Boards of      
   Trustees of the public universities, during their respective terms  of      
   office,  to  be  and  remain  Illinois  residents, carry a grade point      
   average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, and be enrolled at  all  times      
   during  the  regular  academic  year (excluding summer session) for at      
   least 8 semester hours of credit.  Provides that  a  student  member's      
   term  on  the  Board  is  deemed terminated by operation of law if the      
   student fails to meet and maintain  the  residency,  grade  point,  or      
   semester credit hour enrollment requirement.                                
        GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE                                     
        Recommends that the voting student member on each university gov-      
   erning board whose term of office begins on July 1, 1998 or on July 1       
   of either of the 2 succeeding years shall be designated by the Gover-       
   nor from a list of candidates submitted by a 6-member screening panel       
   established at each university.  States that a voting student member        
   is not entitled to vote on matters of faculty tenure or faculty promo-      
   tion or on issues on which the student member has a conflict of inter-      
   est.  Provides that beginning on July 1, 2001, and thereafter, all          
   student members on university governing boards shall again be nonvot-       
   ing members. Revises provisions relating to a quorum at Board or            
   Committee meetings to provide that unless a student member is entitled      
   to vote on a measure at such a meeting he or she shall not be consid-       
   ered a member for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present       
   at the time that measure is voted upon.  Replaces a student membership      
   eligibility requirement of at least 8 hours of university credit en-        
   rollment at all times during a student's term of office except during       
   summer school with a requirement that the student be a full-time stu-       
   dent enrolled at all times during his or her term of office except          
   during summer school.
