State Tax Fund Appropriations for Operating Expenses of Community Colleges.
Grapevine, n369 p3035-40 Feb 1991
The "Grapevine" newsletter has been published since 1958. Its subtitle says "Reports on State Tax Legislation; state appropriations for universities, colleges, and community colleges; legislation affecting education beyond the high school." This issue contains a feature article focusing on community colleges: "State-Tax-Fund Appropriations for Operating Expenses of Community Colleges." Data tables are presented on the tax support received by community colleges via two basic funding patterns (i.e., "state-aided" institutions, which receive state and local funding, and "state" institutions, which receive state funding only. These data tables cover: (1) percentages of two-year gain in appropriations for community colleges and for all higher education operating expenses; (2) appropriations of state tax funds to "state-aided" public community colleges for annual operating expenses, fiscal years 1988-89, 1989-90, and 1990-91, with percentages of two-year gains; and (3) appropriations of state tax funds for annual operating expenses of "state" community colleges for fiscal years 1988-89, 1989-90, and 1990-91, with percentages of gain over the most recent two years.
