Agency History

The Joint Committee on Higher Education was created in 1965 by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 156 (Stats. 1965, Res. Ch. 216). In the initial act the committee was to report to the 1967 regular session. ACR 56, 1966 First Extraordinary Session (Res. Ch. 83) continued the committee until the 1969 regular session. Under the 1965 act the committee was to: study and analyze the development of higher education under the State Master Plan, 1960-65; reevaluate the Master Plan, if necessary, for the years 1965-75; and explore the total needs of higher education for the period 1975-80. ACR 16, 1967 Regular Session (Res. Ch. 69), further added the elements of tuition and higher education finance to the committee's areas of study. The committee consisted of 5 members of the Senate and 5 members of the Assembly plus additional staffing as necessary.
