SCS/SB 873 – Current law provides for nine members on the board of curators for the University of Missouri, with one member from each congressional district. This act provides that if Missouri loses a congressional district from redistricting based on the 2010 census, the ninth member of the board will be a student curator who serves a two-year term. The student curator could be from any congressional district and could vote on any matter before the board except for the hiring or firing of faculty or staff. The first student curator would be appointed in January 2011 and would replace the existing nonvoting student representative.
This act is similar to HB 613 (2007), SB 106 (2007), SB 673 (2006).
