             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  This bill establishes, until July 1, 2020, a state  
          grant program to incentivize increased adoption of open  
          educational resources at California Community Colleges and the  
          California State University campuses.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           The expansion of the use of previously appropriated funds will  
            allow expenditure of approximately $4 million in unspent funds  
            from the initial appropriation.  (General Fund)


          Author  
          Amendments:  Eliminate cost pressure to continue funding for the  
          California Open Online Library for Education and other  
          clarifying amendments.
