LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST





   SB 1737, Hayden.  Postsecondary education:  University of

California:   colloquium.

   Existing law establishes a statewide system of public

postsecondary education that includes, among other segments, the

various campuses of the University of California, which is

administered by the Regents of the University of California.

   This bill would request the Regents of the University of

California to assemble a colloquium of scholars to draft a research

proposal to analyze the economic benefits of slavery that accrued to

owners and the businesses, including insurance companies and their

subsidiaries, that received those benefits.  The bill would require

the State Library to participate in this effort, if its resources

allow. The bill would also request the regents to make 

recommendations to the Legislature regarding the colloquium's 

findings by January 1, 2002.

  SECTION 1.  Article 2.7 (commencing with Section 92615) is added to
