12             (3)  Any public educational institution exempt  from

17        of such employer.
18             (5)  Any   educational   institution  which  on  the
19        effective  date  of  this  amendatory  Act  of  1984   is
20        regulated  solely by or which on January 2, 2001 June 30,

SB317 Enrolled              -2-                LRB9205862NTsb
 1             (6)  Any institution and  the  franchisees  of  such
 2        institution   which   offer   exclusively   a  course  of
 3        instruction in income tax theory or return preparation at
 4        a total contract price of no  more  than  $400,  provided
 5        that  the total annual enrollment of such institution for
 6        all such courses of instruction exceeds 500 students, and
 7        further provided that the total contract  price  for  all
 8        instruction offered to a student in any one calendar year
 9        does not exceed $400.  For each calendar year after 1990,
10        the  total  contract price shall be adjusted, rounded off
11        to the nearest dollar, by  the  same  percentage  as  the
12        increase  or  decrease  in  the  general  price  level as
13        measured by  the  consumer  price  index  for  all  urban
14        consumers  for the United States, or its successor index,
15        as defined and officially reported by the  United  States
16        Department of Labor, or its successor agency.  The change
17        in  the  index  shall  be  that as first published by the
18        Department of Labor for  the  calendar  year  immediately
19        preceding  the  year in which the total contract price is
20        calculated.
21        (b)  An institution exempted under subsection (a) of this
22    Section must file with the Superintendent an annual financial
23    report to demonstrate continued compliance by the institution
24    with the requirements on which the exemption is based.
