HB2141 by Pickett (Relating to authorizing the issuance of revenue bonds for The University of Texas at El Paso.), 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 $70,000,000 in revenue bonds by the University of Texas System for the University of Texas at El Paso to finance various capital improvements including facilities for the College of Health Sciences complex.
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. This policy is assumed to continue.
