The Role of Students in the Inception and Implementation of Chapter 74-312(3), Laws of Florida (Student Activity Fee), 1974 to 1976.
Kaplan, Joseph Edward
The study presents an analysis of the inception and implementation of the Florida law governing college student activity fees. After an introduction and review of the literature, it is explained that the data were obtained through focused research interviews with 41 participants. The following four conclusions were reached: (1) the student governments' reduced authority for the allocation of the student activity fee was the major incident that led to the inception of the activity fee legislation; (2) the political strategy of daisy-chaining or bill-riding the language of the acitivty fee bill insured the bill's passage on the last day of the 1974 legislative session; (3) procedures used by student governments to implement the activity fee bill during the fiscal year 1975-1976 were generally consistent at the nine state universities; and (4) the recommended changes or additions to Chapter 74-312(3), Law of Florida (student activity fee) ranged from no change in the statute to separating the activity fund into two separate and distinct allocations. Extensive appendices include such items as the interview schedule, letters, a case study, memoranda, and copies of legislation, including Law of Florida 74-312(3). An approximately 180-item bibliography is included. (Author/PHR)
