  1.1                          A bill for an act 
  1.2             relating to higher education; specifying changes in 
  1.3             interstate tuition reciprocity agreements; amending 
  1.4             Laws 2001, First Special Session chapter 1, article 1, 
  1.5             section 2, subdivision 3.  
  1.6   BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
  1.7      Section 1.  Laws 2001, First Special Session chapter 1, 
  1.8   article 1, section 2, subdivision 3, is amended to read:  
  1.9   Subd. 3.  Interstate Tuition
  1.10  Reciprocity                            5,250,000      5,250,000 
  1.11  If the appropriation in this 
  1.12  subdivision for either year is 
  1.13  insufficient, the appropriation for the 
  1.14  other year is available to meet 
  1.15  reciprocity contract obligations. 
  1.16  The higher education services office 
  1.17  must negotiate the reciprocity 
  1.18  agreements for remission of nonresident 
  1.19  tuition under Minnesota Statutes, 
  1.20  section 136A.08.  The agreements must 
  1.21  be negotiated under this subdivision 
  1.22  with the goal of reducing and 
  1.23  minimizing so that:  (1) students from 
  1.24  other states who attend Minnesota 
  1.25  institutions under a reciprocity 
  1.26  agreement pay tuition that is at least 
  1.27  equal to the tuition paid by Minnesota 
  1.28  residents attending the same 
  1.29  institution; and (2) the obligation of 
  1.30  participating states to make general 
  1.31  fund transfers for the tuition 
  1.32  reciprocity program are reduced and 
  1.33  minimized while maintaining access for 
  1.34  Minnesota students.  Negotiations must 
  1.35  include consideration of new methods of 
  1.36  collaboration with education 
  1.37  institutions in reciprocity states to 
  1.38  improve student access at lower costs, 
  1.39  including on-line learning.  The 
  1.40  chancellor of the Minnesota state 
  2.1   colleges and universities and the 
  2.2   president of the University of 
  2.3   Minnesota or their designees may 
  2.4   participate in any negotiations on the 
  2.5   tuition reciprocity agreement.  The 
  2.6   higher education services office must 
  2.7   present progress on negotiations under 
  2.8   this subdivision to the higher 
  2.9   education finance committees of in the 
  2.10  2002 legislature and 2003 legislative 
  2.11  sessions. 
  2.12     Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
  2.13     This act is effective the day following final enactment.
