HB1295 by Rose (Relating to authorizing the issuance of revenue bonds for Texas State University--San Marcos for the construction of a fine arts and communications center.), As Introduced
|Fiscal Year||Probable Net Positive/(Negative) Impact to General Revenue Related Funds|
|Fiscal Year||Probable (Cost) from
GENERAL REVENUE FUND
The bill would authorize the issuance of a maximum of $50 million in revenue bonds by the Texas State University System for Texas State University-San Marcos for the construction of a fine arts communication center.
The bonds would be payable from pledged revenue plus tuition. The bonds would not be general obligations of the State. However, the issued bonds would have fiscal implications for the State. Although tuition income is pledged against the bonds, historically the Legislature has appropriated General Revenue to reimburse institutions for the tuition used to pay the debt service and this policy is assumed to continue.
