HB 321/FN (BR 1262) - J. Wayne

     AN ACT relating to students with disabilities.
     Create a new section of KRS Chapter 164 to require that each postsecondary education institution with residence facilities have housing and security policies that assure students with permanent or temporary disabilities a safe environment in which to live and study; the policy shall include, but not be limited to an appeals process that may be used when a student has reason to believe that the policy or the housing assignment does not accommodate the student's disability or endangers the student's safety, and a current list of students with disabilities to be used by authorities to help assure safety of the students during an emergency; create a new section of KRS Chapter 164 to waive sovereign immunity for persons who violate the requirements relating to the housing and security policies for students with disabilities.


     HCS/FN - Retain original provisions except that postsecondary institutions shall not be required to waive sovereign immunity; make technical corrections.
