HB3332 by Keffer (Relating to junior college district territory annexation and program approval in certain counties.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Local Government Impact
The provisions of the bill allow Ranger College to include Brown County in its annexation territory. With the annexation, the college may have to assume a larger portion of the instructional costs for students residing in the newly added service area since residents would be able to pay in-service area rates for tuition or fees. However, the resulting addition of Brown County to the tax base through a referendum would result in increased revenues for Ranger College.
