Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends various Acts relating to  the  governance  of  the  public      
   universities  in  Illinois.   Provides that beginning on the effective      
   date of the amendatory Act and until July 1, 2001 the governing  board      
   of  each public university shall have a student member who is entitled      
   to vote on all Board matters except those  involving  faculty  tenure,      
   faculty  promotion,  or  an  issue  on which that student member has a      
   direct conflict of interest.  Provides that beginning July 1, 2001 all      
   student members of the governing board of a public university shall be      
   nonvoting members.  Adds that a student member who is not entitled  to      
   vote  on a measure shall not be considered a member for the purpose of      
   determining whether a quorum is present at the time  that  measure  is      
   voted  upon.   Adds  qualifications  for  selection,  designation, and      
   service as a voting or nonvoting student member of a governing  Board.      
   Provides that for a voting student member whose term begins on July 1,      
   1998  or  on  July 1 of either of the 2 succeeding calendar years, the      
   Governor shall  designate  that  member  from  a  list  of  candidates      
   submitted  by  the  Student Trustee Screening Panel.  Provides for the      
   appointment  of  Panel  members  and  makes  other  related   changes.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Deletes everything after the enacting  clause  and  restores  the      
   provisions  deleted,  except  eliminates those provisions that created      
   the Student Trustees Screening Panel for the selection  of  candidates      
   to  serve  as the voting member of the governing board of institutions      
   of  higher  learning.   Provides  instead  for  their   selection   by      
   campus-wide  student  referendum, except that on governing boards with      
   both voting and nonvoting student members, provides  that  the  voting      
   student  member  shall  be designated by the Governor from among those      
   students that are selected by  campus  wide  referendum  to  serve  as      
   student members of the board.  Effective immediately.
