Acts, 2016 Reg. Sess., Ch. 123

WVC 18 B- 1 E- 4 §18B-1E-4. Plan implementation; legislative intent; oversight; reporting.
     (a) The legislative findings set forth in section two of this article demonstrate the unique historical role that WVU-Tech has played as a vital component of the state's higher education system. In order for the institution to move forward and realize its full potential, its future must be supported by a financial commitment from the state. Therefore, as funds are available, it is the intent of the Legislature to make appropriations to the commission to support the revitalization project at WVU-Tech.

     (b) Appropriated funds may be expended under the direction of the Chancellor for the purposes set forth in this article and in the revitalization plan approved by LOCEA.

     (c) The purposes for which the moneys may be used include, but are not limited to, development costs for new programs, student outreach initiatives, demolition of certain facilities, and renovation of campus infrastructure or other items designed to support existing students and attract new students.

     (d) By December 1, 2012, and annually thereafter until all appropriated funds have been expended, the Chancellor shall report to LOCEA on the allocation of funds. Additionally, the Chancellor shall provide regular updates to LOCEA, as necessary or requested, to keep members informed of the progress made in implementing the purposes and intent of this article and the components of the revitalization plan.

     (e) By May 1, 2014, the commission and governing board shall provide to LOCEA a detailed summary of all revitalization project activities undertaken to date. This report also shall include recommendations for alterations to the revitalization plan and the goals of the revitalization project and may include recommended options for governance changes including independent status for the institution.
