11 hereby amended by the addition thereto of a NEW SECTION, to be known and des-
12 ignated as Section 33-105A, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:
13 33-105A. MATRICULATION FEE. The state board of education and the board of
14 regents of the university of Idaho may not adopt a student matriculation fee

16 charged for the immediately preceding fiscal year.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation will establish a 3% cap on increases in student matriculation fees
at the four year colleges and universities; University of Idaho, Idaho State
University, Boise State University and Lewis-Clark College. Overall resident
student fees are an average of 46% higher today than 5 years ago. The
matriculation fee average has changed from 2% ten years ago to its highest 12%
change in 1998. It will be the intent of this legislation to put a hold on raising the
matriculation fees more than 3% of the preceding year.
The direct impact of the 3% cap would be on the students. if the state picks up this
difference, there could be a $63 per student charge which is the difference
between the 3% cap and the average expenditure per year for the last five years.
