Information for the 2024 Legislative Session

Hello! Thanks for visiting our website. 

We work to build partnerships with our state, city and county elected officials to support our mission to “create meaningful learning, advance equity, and strengthen student and community success.”

This 2023-2024 Legislative session, our college system is focused on the following capital and operating budget priorities:

  • Strengthening our computer science workforce.
  • Improving our energy performance in buildings. 
  • Investing in our college campuses for repairs and capital project funding.

Thank you for your support!

In the 2023 session, the Legislature approved the funding for our  Center of Innovative Learning and Engagement (now under construction), full funding for cost-of-living-adjustments (saving TCC $1.3 million and the entire system $35 million),  and established programs to help remove barriers for students. And the recent passage of SB 5194 supports our work with TCC becoming an anti-racist institution.
