   that under the University System promotions, demotions, removals,  and

   discrimination against applicants for employment under the  University      
   System  and  the  provisions  prohibiting  the  board of trustees of a      
   community college from discriminating in appointments and  employment.      
   Prohibits  public institutions of higher education from discriminating      
   against  applicants  for  admission  and  students  because  of  these      
   factors.  Effective immediately.

          HB37 does not require expenditure of State funds and does not        
          have an effect on State revenues.
