           SOURCE  :     California Community College Chancellors Office


           DIGEST  :    This bill revises specified reporting  
          requirements for the California community College  
          Chancellors Office.  Specifically, this bill reestablishes  
          the requirement for the California Community Colleges and  
          the California State Universities to adopt a common course  
          numbering system for the 20-highest demand majors in the  
          respective segments and to report on their efforts.  The  
          University of California will be requested to adopt the  
          common course numbering system and report on its efforts.

           ANALYSIS  :    Current law and the annual budget act, via  
          supplemental or provisions reporting language adopted  
                                                           CONTINUED





                                                               AB 1713

          therein, requires the public postsecondary education  
          segments to report tot the Legislature a large number of  
          reports per year.

          This bill revises specified reporting requirements for the  
          California Community College Chancellor's Office (CCCCO).   
          Specifically, this bill reestablishes the requirement for  
          the California Community Colleges (CCC) and the California  
          State Universities to adopt a common course numbering  
          system for the 20-highest demand majors in the respective  
          segments and to report on their efforts.  The University of  
          California will be requested to adopt the common course  
          numbering system and report on its efforts.

          This bill:

          1. Changes the due dates for specified CCCCO.

          2. Deletes obsolete statutory requirements.

          3. Makes other clarifying and technical language changes.

           Prior/Related Legislation
           
          AB 1182 (Brownley), Chapter 386, Statutes of 2009,  
          eliminates some, and restructured and reorganized other,  
          higher education reporting requirements of the state's  
          public universities and colleges to provide for more  
          effective, manageable., and transparent reporting to the  
          Legislature.  Passed the Senate Floor with a vote of 37-0  
          on September 9, 2009.

          AB 1585 (Assembly Accountability and Administrative Review  
          Committee), Chapter 7, Statutes of 2010, modifies the list  
          of state agency reports maintained by the Legislative  
          Counsel.  Passed the Senate Floor with a vote of 35-0 on  
          February 11, 2010.

          Local:  No

          According to the Assembly Appropriations Committee  
          analysis, minor savings to the Chancellor's Office of the  
          CCC and to the districts.

           ARGUMENTS IN SUPPORT  :    According to the author's office,  
          statute and budget act provisions require the CCCCO to  
          submit dozens of reports to the Governor and the  
          Legislature, some of which are burdensome, inconsistent,  
          obsolete and/or duplicative, some of which can be  
          consolidated or moved to a more efficient timeline, and  
          some of which are no longer needed.  According to the  
          author's office, the CCCCO is required to produce a total  
          of 43 legislatively mandated reports.  This bill modifies  
          six of these reports in the Education Code.
