Monitoring of Student Right To Know and Campus Security Act of 1990. Report To Accompany H. Res. 470. House of Representatives, 104th Congress, 2d Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Economic and Educational Opportunities.
This report to accompany House Resolution 470 expresses the sense of Congress that the Department of Education should play a more active role in the monitoring of and enforcing compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965 related to campus crime. The report makes reference to the Campus Crime and Security Awareness Act, enacted as part of the Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act, a law requiring any institutional recipient of Title IV student aid to report to students, faculty, and prospective students on the number of crimes in the categories of murder, sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft as well as arrests for liquor-law violations, drug-abuse violations, and weapons possessions. House Resolution 470 supports improving and ensuring compliance with the Campus Security Act in order to protect students from crime on college campuses. An estimate of the costs of implementing this legislation has been received by the appropriate House committee. (CK)
