4.     Legislation update – SB 00059

b.    Can the panel get a summary of related questions/complaints? Contact Krista
c.    Legislations could change how transfer works within Illinois.
d.    Senator Silverstein used legislation from California that had no program like IAI. He basically replaced California with Illinois in the bill.
e.    SB 00059 basically says that if a student has his/her Associates degree, they are given some measure of security when transferring to a 4 year school, at the Jr. level.
