18A:64A-22. Annual budget requests for State support of colleges
18A:64A-22. Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the Council of County Colleges may submit to the State Treasurer annual budget requests for State support of county colleges. Within the limits of funds appropriated for such purposes, the board of trustees of a county college may based upon the itemized statement fixed and determined pursuant to N.J.S.18A:64A-17 apply to the State Treasurer and receive State support:
a. For capital projects in amounts not to exceed one-half of the cost of said capital projects, and
b. For operational costs to the extent of 43% but not to exceed 50% of the educational and general costs of the county colleges in the base year; provided, however, that for the purposes of determining State aid, only credit courses and noncredit remedial, developmental, general education development and adult basic education courses shall be included in calculating such costs. This sum shall be distributed to the county colleges by the treasurer in consultation with the Council of County Colleges according to a formula that includes categorical support and differential funding based on program costs.
No county college shall receive more than 50% of its projected educational and general costs through the provisions of this act.
Each county which operates a county college shall continue to provide moneys for the support of the college in an amount no less than those moneys provided in the year in which this act is enacted or 25% of the operational expense in the base State fiscal year, whichever is greater.
State support for the operational expenses of county colleges shall be made within limits of State appropriation.
