Thank you, Mr. President. I move that the House amendment be agreed to and speaking to the motion.
[Unknown]
The Senator has the floor.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. President. What the House amendment does is it deletes a line in the bill that actually stated that the campus security and local law enforcement needed to specify who had the primary responsibility in an investigation, a sexual assault investigation on campus. The association of campus security and also the association of chiefs of police asked that that line be deleted because the primary responsibility is already outlined in many other documents and laws, so that line is deleted and the bill now emphasizes the fact that sharing of information is very important to the successful conclusion of investigations. So with that explanation, I to ask that the amendment pass.

Senate bill 589, passed the House with a substitute.
[Unknown]
Senator the from Rockingham, Senator Obenshain .
[Unknown]
Mr. President, I move to accept the House substitute. These changes conform essentially the bill that I introduced to the bill introduced by the Delegate from Henrico. They're mostly now clarifying and technical. They align the calendar for reporting of educational improvement tax credit purposes. It eliminates some of the unutilized information that is reported and lowers the penalty for failure to disburse funds premature -- or within the statement period from 200% to still a substantial penalty. 100%. It does not do what my bill did, which was a more substancetive change. May bill would have spended the period for disbursement of scholarship funds from 12 months to three years. They took that out, so this is a pale shadow of what the former bill was, so I move that it pass.

Bill Carrico
The floor substitute how permits each public institution of higher education to offer an alternative tuition or fee structure for students at a lower cost of their attendance. It eliminates the provision that offered specific financial incentives to higher education institutes regarding alternative tuition, fee structures which became the issue before the floor substitute was offered. The substitute has the state council of higher education making recommendations regarding financial incentives and benefits that might be offered to the public institutions. This gives a pathway for those that know what their major is going to be, to get there in a four-year plan and with a lower tuition structure, and the council shall report its recommendations to the joint subcommittee on the future of competitiveness in Virginia for hair education no later than November 2016. And I hope it would be the pleasure of this body to adopt the substitute.

[Unknown]
Thank you. There president, colonel heights put this bill in and I thought I was necessary to bring it to the floor and in orz to do, so I be a sane. It otherwise passed 11 yes and zero nos. What this does is it changes the and obligations of the treasurer and put puts it back in the hands of the city finance director or manager. The statute was specific what the duties of the treasurer were. Those have been stripped out and those have been assigned in a more general fashion to the city manager who can then appoint or constitutional offices, duties by the council a director of finance. It just kind of reducing the obligations of the constitutional office of treasurer and they said that they needed it because being that it's an elected position, there's no prerequisite in terms of qualifications for a treasurer. They've been concerned about audits and bookkeeping, so they wanted someone such as cpa, a professional to be properly administer the finances of Colonial Heights and for those reasons I thought it in he is to bring to the floor since we were eliminating a constitutional office, we should do so as a body and for those reasons, I also renew my motion that hb 1114 pass, sir.

[Unknown]
Mr. President, I renew my motion the bill pass and in answer to the question posed by the gentleman from Loudoun County, I would say that previously there had been a process for the director to make these approvals, the statute prior to adoption of this would have required only that a written request for an exemption be made, and it required that a determination be made by the it. There is no requirement that he waive it in writing. There was no time period for his making that determination. There was no requirement that he state the reasons. This was an effort by the patron to set forth a more detailed process and zee tailed director, simply that he waive findings -- detailed findings in the vent that the director saw fit for grant a waiver of somebody convicted of one of these crimes. The patron simply thought that it was appropriate that the director should state in writing expressly his reasons for granting that sxempings.

Steve Newman
There's been end snore us in amount of work going on in the subcommittee and committee on this. Coming out of committee, it was apparently clear that some of the late nate work produced a fau errors in the bill and they naed to make sure you understand that thosy quickly repaired. One of those errors is that there was an agreement among the chair and others that if the funds, which will go to indigent care for virginians, did not get approved by cms, that the bill would not take effect. And that provision, while talked about in committee and otherwise, when you go through it, it just wasn't included in the bill and that was my agreement. I will attempt to fix that on Monday. Mr. President, there was also an agreement trying to work with Chesapeake hospital to say that there was a fee and some can like the fae and not like that fee, but the way the bill is written, anyone in that entire planning districts gets pud into that fund and that was never aepz. What we explained in the committee room is what we plan to do. That narrows that down verily. And I know there are members here that are just not in favor of the exemptions. I get it, and there will be some discussion about that on Monday, but I think that there are a couple of other clean-ups that are taking place in the bill, but in general, a lot of the things that you May have heard about from your hospitals, I think there were eight items, we've agreed and found a way to fix seven of those. Those will all be before you. There's plenty of reasons to support this bill, there are plenty of reasons to have thoughts about this bill that are not as positive, but I think the technical items will all be before ous Monday. Mr. President, I appreciate you allowing plea to speak stoit. I hope we allow it to go bye for the day.

[Unknown]
Mr. President, many of you know that we have set up the able program to try to assist that's individuals that are na need and that is a trust fund account and this bill seeks to ensure that items that move through that account ones be part of the means testing. Clearly there are federal rules on some of these items and this bill is very clear that it does not lay out those -- will not set aside those federal requirements. The Senator from southern Fairfax has worked on this program for a good while. Mr. President, I would like to yield to the Senator from southern Fairfax to continue this discussion on the bill.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Senator. The Senator from southern Fairfax, Senator Barker .
George Barker
Yes, Mr. President. Just to add a little bit to what the Senator from linchg burg has said already. This is a program that was set up just a jeer or two ago -- year or two ago, allows individuals, family members, people with intellectual and other disabilities that will last their lifetime, to be able to set up accounts so their loved ones, family members can continue to receive support and services related to the funds in that account after they're long gone. What this does is makes sure that in terms of setting up these accounts, that we're not in effect any way prohibiting people in higher income from being able to participate in the program and as the Senator from Lynchburg says, it doesn't change federal tax rules or anything, but it does allow the accounts to be operated and be able to help people long after their parents and others are gone.
