VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
April 23, 2003
Introduced by Reps. Harrell, Limehouse, Scarborough, Altman, Hagood, Merrill, Breeland, Whipper, R. Brown, Young, Hinson, Miller and Mack
S. Printed 4/23/03--H.
Read the first time April 16, 2003.
To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4006) to amend the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, by adding Section 59-53-425 so as to provide that Trident Technical College is authorized to establish a four-year culinary curriculum program, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT W. HARRELL, JR. for Committee.
EXPLANATION OF IMPACT:
Passage of this bill would have no direct impact on the General Fund of the State as the funds necessary for establishing this program must be provided from existing appropriations within the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education or other available revenue sources. Should tuition and fee revenue be used to cover these costs, it would likely necessitate an adjustment in Trident Technical College's fee structure.
Office of State Budget
