    On page 5, line 2, after "investment" strike all material through "centers" on line 4 and insert "for the building of new institutions, campuses, branches or centers"


    On page 5, line 12, after "institutions." insert "Board recommendations regarding proposed major expansion shall be limited to determinations of whether the major expansion is within the scope indicated in the most recent strategic master plan for higher education or most recent system design plan. Recommendations regarding existing capital prioritization processes are not within the scope of the evaluation of major expansion."




           EFFECT: Removes significant expansion of existing campuses, branches, or centers as part of the definition of "major expansion" and thereby removes such expansion from HECB review. Clarifies that evaluation of proposed major expansions does not include current capital prioritization processes.
