Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Public Higher Education Act. Provides that the intent of the Act is for the requirements of the Act to apply equally to the governing board of each public institution of higher education in this State. Defines "governing board of each public institution of higher education" and "public institution of higher education". Requires that, beginning with the 2022-2023 academic year, all documents and forms, including applications for admission, issued by a public institution of higher education offer a student the option to select "non-binary" if the document or form asks the student to identify the student's gender or biological sex. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Illinois State University)

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Southern Illinois University)
 Compliance with HB 4265 (H-AM-2) would require staff time to identify, redesign and update web-based and paper-based forms and reports. As these would all be internally made changes, we estimate those costs to be nominal.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (University of Illinois)
 Compliance with HB 4265 (H-AM 2) would cost the University of Illinois System approximately $10,000 to add gender neutral responses to student documents currently in use across the U of I System. This will cover the costs to reprogram the existing electronic student record systems. Additional expenses for paper copies, etc. are considered negligible.
