Two more higher ed. bills on Governor’s schedule

The Governor’s bill action schedule for Thursday has two more bills of interest to the UW.  One is our request bill (HB 1640) which protects private investment information submitted to our endowment.  The other is HB 1946 which charters a workgroup and sets a policy direction toward common online learning technologies at four-year schools and community and technical colleges.

You can find the Governor’s bill action webpage here.

(For those who are curious about the terminology — the process is formally referred to as “bill action” rather than “bill signing” because on rare occasions there is a full or partial veto.)
