A BILL to amend article ten, chapter eighteen-b of the code of West Virginia, one thousand nine hundred thirty-one, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated section one-a, relating to allowing members of the national guard who are not residents of West Virginia but who are active members of a national guard unit or national guard operation in this state to pay resident tuition rates at institutions of higher education.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That article ten, chapter eighteen-b of the code of West Virginia, one thousand nine hundred thirty-one, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated section one-a, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 10. FEES AND OTHER MONEY COLLECTED AT STATE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION.
§18B-10-1a. Resident tuition rates for national guard members.

(a) The term "resident" or "residency," or any other term or expression used to designate a West Virginia resident student, when used to determine the rate of tuition to be charged students attending community colleges and state-related and state-owned institutions of higher education shall be construed to include members of the national guard who are not residents of West Virginia but who are active members of a national guard unit or national guard operation in this state.
(b) Members of the national guard who are not residents of West Virginia but who are assigned to serve in this state shall be charged resident tuition rates provided that the student is a resident, as that term is defined in subsection (a) of this section, on the first day of the semester or term of the college or institution.
(c) The provisions of this section apply for the semester or term immediately following the effective date of this section.

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to require state colleges and universities to apply in-state tuition rates to members of the national guard who are not residents of this state but who are active members of a national guard unit or national guard operation in this state.

This section is new; therefore, stike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
