PUB COMM COLL-ST BD GRANTS                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the  provisions  of  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.   Effective  July  1,
