Whereas, Out of state and international students pay higher fees and in many colleges are guaranteed 12 units; and

Whereas, Many colleges give enrollment priority to out of state and international students, thereby depriving resident students of access in spite of their contributions to California higher education;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges also research, summarize, and report to the body ways of integrating out-of-state and international student programs into colleges and districts ways that provide documented benefits to all students; and

Status Report: 

I think the survey may have happened. I am not sure the Rostrum article did--I can't find one. But to be honest, while I recall us discussing this, I am not sure much happened at all.
