The following are proposed bills that are sponsored by the CSU Board of Trustees for
the 2017 legislative session.
- AB 422 (Arambula) CSU Authority: Doctor of Nursing Practice Degrees. This bill authorizes the CSU to permanently offer the Doctor of Nursing Practice
- AB 819 (Medina) CSU Regulatory Authority. This bill permanently grants the CSU the authority to draft its own regulations.
Since 1996, the CSU has been granted statutory authority to adopt, amend or repeal
its own regulations instead of being required to follow the Administrative Procedures
Act, which governs the regulatory process for state agencies (Education Code 89030.1).
The CSU’s authority has been extended four times with the most recent extension set
to expire on January 1, 2018.
- SB 363 (Senate Banking and Finance Committee) Financial transactions: loans and deposits. This bill provides a modification to the California Government Code that allows
the CSU to deposit operational funds for study abroad programs in local accounts in
certain foreign countries where there are no banks with FDIC insurance or an equivalent.
