(1) It is the intent of the legislature that the senate and house appropriations subcommittees on community colleges, together with the Michigan community college association and other interested stakeholders, review any statutory mandates imposed on community colleges, including those identified by the legislative commission on statutory mandates established under former chapter 7B of the legislative council act, 1986 PA 268, and determine if those mandates are necessary for the health and safety of students; are essential to the academic integrity of the community colleges; exceed any applicable federal requirements; are superfluous to the core academic programs of the community colleges; and materially impact local control and governance of the colleges.
(2) The senate and house appropriations subcommittees on community colleges shall review the estimated costs and benefits of each statutory mandate reviewed under subsection (1) and shall report their findings to the state budget director.
