HB 2024 allows governing boards of higher education institutions to authorize temporary use of student housing, free of charge or at a reduced rate, by low-income homeless students attending that institution during a time the student housing facilities are otherwise unused by students who are paying housing fees. The institution is given the authority to define “low-income” and temporary occupation is subject to the terms and condition developed by the institution.
