DIGEST OF HB 1271 (Updated March 15, 2000 9:41 AM - DI 51)


Tuition exemption for veterans' children. Provides that the tuition exemption for children of certain veterans who attend state educational institutions exempts the child from the payment of mandatory fees (rather than fees paid into the general fund of the institution). Requires the commission for higher education, in consultation with the state student assistance commission, to define "mandatory fees". Adopts standard terminology to refer collectively to all state educational institutions. Adds provisions for considering other assistance when determining the amount of the higher education benefit for children of veterans and children and spouses of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Specifies that mandatory fees are covered by the assistance for children of veterans, children and spouses of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and for national guard members.
