Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Public Community College Act.  Provides that the board      
   of community college districts shall be required to file  the  uniform      
   financial statements from the audit report (now the audit report) with      
   the State Board.                                                            
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB1180 fails to create a State mandate.      
          FISCAL NOTE (Community College Bd.)                                  
          There is no fiscal impact on State revenues or expenditures.         
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          110 ILCS 805/2-16.02            from Ch. 122, par. 102-16.02         
        Adds provisions further amending  the  Public  Community  College      
   Act.   Authorizes  the Illinois Community College Board to specify the      
   measures that will be used to distribute grants to community colleges.      
   Authorizes the Board to apply a percentage  factor  to  the  statewide      
   threshold  in  determining  the  level  of  equalization funding and a      
   minimum equalization grant for  a  qualifying  district  that  becomes      
   ineligible  for  any or for full equalization funding due to threshold      
   prorations.   Requires  community  college   districts   to   maintain      
   in-district  tuition  rates  per semester credit hour as determined by      
   the State Board and provides for a reduction in  equalization  funding      
   for  districts  that  fail to meet the minimum required rate until, by      
   July 1, 2001, districts fail to qualify for  equalization  funding  if      
   they  do  not meet the required minimum in-district tuition rate. Also      
   revises provisions relative to small  district,  special  populations,      
   and workforce preparation grants and provides for deferred maintenance      
   grants based upon criteria established by the State Board.  Eliminates      
   provisions under which a one-time operating expense start-up grant was      
   provided  to  Community  College District No. 540. Adds a July 1, 1997      
   effective date.                                                             
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Further amends the Public Community  College  Act.   Raises  from      
   $1,500,000  to  $4,500,000  the  limit  on  amounts  a local community      
   college district can borrow for alterations or repairs  necessary  for      
   energy  conservation,  health  or safety, environmental protection, or      
   handicapped accessibility.
