This bill prohibits a four-year public or independent institution of higher education from requiring any student enrolled in the institution to purchase a meal plan. In addition, the bill provides that the only type of meal plan that an institution may offer its students, is one designed as a spending allowance, which works similar to a bank debit card. Each time the student makes a purchase the total would be subtracted from the balance of the student's account. At the end of the semester, if there are any funds remaining in the account, a student would have the option of either receiving a refund or having the remaining funds "rolled over" into the student's spending allowance for the following semester. The provisions of this bill will not be applicable to an independent institution of higher education which has a total endowment of more than $1,000,000,000.
