SB 218 - CA Law Affecting State University and College Related Nonprofits Vetoed

SB 218 was a bill that would have amended the California Education and Government Codes to treat certain nonprofit auxiliary organizations, such as alumni groups, student associations, faculty organizations, and supporting organizations associated with the University of California (UC), the California State University (CSU), and the California Community Colleges (CCC), as state and local agencies under the California Public Records Act (CPRA), Government Code section 6250 et seq. The legislative intent was to reject court interpretation of state law regarding the application of CPRA to auxiliary organizations, in particular CSU Fresno Association, at issue in California State University, Fresno Assn., Inc. v. Superior Court (2001) 90 Cal.App.4th 810, which excluded these organizations from CPRA requirements.The bill was vetoed by the Governor because he felt it would "result in a loss of private donations and volunteer activities supporting California public institutions of higher education."
