Through Assembly Bill 1993(1989, Farr), the Legislature directed the California Postsecondary Education Commission to help the new Council for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education draft preliminary regulations in order to implement new laws regulating private colleges and vocational schools in California. The Legislature specified that the Commission deliver those draft regulations to the Council by December 31, 1990, for the Council's consideration when it assumes its duties on January 1, 1991, from the Private Postsecondary Education Division of the Department of Education. On December 10, the Commission authorized transmittal of those draft regulations to the Council, and it published them as Commission Report 90-31. The Commission also prepared this Statement of Reasons explaining its rationale for each of the regulations concerning degree-granting institutions. The Office of Administrative Law will require such a statement of reasons as part of the Council's submission of its proposed regulations to the Office for approval. This statement reflects the Commission's expertise gained from over 140 site visits in the past five years to unaccredited degree-granting institutions in California. The Commission has also published the testimony it received at two public hearings on the draft regulations in Commission Report 90-25, Public Testimony Regarding Preliminary Draft Regulations to Implement the Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Reform Act of 1989.
