SB 1709: The College Opportunity Act of 2006

Author: Senator Scott
Status: Inactive – Held in Committee
Campaign Position: Sponsor

The College Opportunity Act of 2006 sought to renew the state’s commitment to the promise made in the 1960 Master Plan for Higher Education that California would provide a place in a community college or university for every eligible student who seeks it. Given the significant growth in California’s young adult population and the increasing demands for a highly educated workforce, the bill set out a broad vision for extending the promise of college opportunity to the next generation of Californians.
