SECTION I

Highlights This Week

 

Note: The Governor has 15 days after the end of the session, until June 13, to act on bills he received during the last 5 days of the session. We will provide one last Legislative Update after June 13.

 

 

Major Higher Education Bills Pass on Final Day of Session: A number of important bills impacting higher education were finally passed the last day of the 1998 legislative session, Friday, May 29. Among those were:

 

Tulsa Higher Education -- SB 1426 makes significant changes in public higher education for the Tulsa area. Rogers University-Tulsa will become a branch campus of Oklahoma State University. Rogers University-Claremore will become a free-standing institution called Rogers State University with branch campuses in Pryor and Bartlesville. The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University will also jointly operate a graduate research center in Tulsa. The Governor has announced that he will sign the bill today.

 

Higher Education Funding -- Three bills appropriating additional "new" money for higher education were also passed on Friday. SB 965 appropriates $24 million from the Rainy Day Fund for higher education. HB 3065 appropriates $9.4 million while HB 3048 adds another $20 million.

 

Bond Issue -- HB 3066 authorized $315 million in capital bond projects, including $45 million for higher education.

 

College Savings Program -- HB 2934 creates the Oklahoma College Savings Plan Act that will allow savings for college expenses on a tax-deferred basis. The program could be open as early as January 1, 1999.

 

 

Teacher's Retirement Changes Approved; Benefit Increase Granted: SB 1037, signed by the Governor on May 28, makes several notable changes in the Oklahoma Teachers' Retirement System (OTRS) and also provides a benefit increase for retirees. The primary changes include:

 

 

FY'99 -- The contribution will be calculated the same way it is now-- a total of 11.5% with 6.7% being offset by the natural gas gross production tax, leaving 4.8% to be paid directly by the employer (unchanged from the current year).

FY'2000 -- The natural gas tax offset is eliminated and the employer contribution is fixed by statute at 4.8%.

FY'2001 -- The employer contribution rate is increased to 5.8%.

FY'2002 -- The employer contribution rate is increased to 6.8%.

FY'2003 and each year thereafter -- the employer contribution rate is increased and capped at a final rate of 7.05%.

 

 

 

Two other bills, HB 2695 and HB 3113, will also impact OTRS if they are approved by the Governor. HB 2695 makes the retiree benefit increase granted above effective only for one year and requires it to be re-evaluated during the 1999 legislative session. HB 3113 provides that, if the state receives a settlement from the tobacco lawsuit, the proceeds would be placed in a trust fund. A portion of the earnings from the trust fund would be allocated to OTRS.

 

 

Higher Education Institutions Exempted from Administrative Procedures Act: On Friday, May 22, the Governor signed HB 3189. Included in the bill is a provision exempting institutional governing boards within the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education from Article I of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). This exemption will relieve institutions of many procedural requirements currently necessary when adopting or changing policies.

 

 

Executive Nominations: The full Senate gave final consent this week to the following gubernatorial nominations:
