Southern Higher Education Legislative Report, 1978. A Summary of State Legislation in 1978 Affecting Higher Education in the South.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Reports on legislative action affecting higher education in the Southern states that held regular or special legislative sessions in 1978 are presented and a preview of 1979 sessions is provided in this publication. In most Southern Regional Education Board States in 1978, higher education maintained or slightly increased its share of state tax fund appropriations. Initial 1979 higher education budget requests seem to indicate that there may be an even larger than usual gap between what governors and legislators may approve and what is being requested. Among the topics discussed are salaries, construction funding, competency testing, state aid to private higher education, veterinary medicine, and collective bargaining. States included in the analysis are Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Maryland, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, and South Carolina. (SW)
