(a) The board of regents of Texas Southern University may levy and collect a recreational
facility fee not to exceed $50 per student for each semester of the regular term or
the summer session from each student enrolled in Texas Southern University, for the
sole purpose of constructing, operating, maintaining, improving, and equipping a recreational
facility or program at the institution. A fee collected under this section is in addition to any other use or service fee
authorized to be levied.
(b) The fees collected under this section shall be deposited to the credit of an account
known as the “Texas Southern University recreational facility fee account” and shall
be under the control of the student fee advisory committee established under Section 54.5031.
(c) The student fee advisory committee annually shall submit to the board of regents
a complete and itemized budget for the recreational facility with a complete report
of all recreational facility activities conducted during the past year and all expenditures
made in connection with those activities. The board of regents may make changes in the budget that the board determines are
necessary. After approving the budget, the board of regents, in accordance with this section,
may levy the recreational facility fees for that year in amounts sufficient to meet
the budgetary needs of the recreational facility. If the budget approved by the board contains an expenditure for the construction
of a facility, the board may contract for the construction of the facility.
(d) The board may not increase the amount of the recreational facility fee by more
than 10 percent in any academic year unless the amount of the increase is approved
by a majority of the students voting in an election held for that purpose or by a
majority of the student government of the institution.
(e) A fee levied under this section may not be considered in determining the maximum
student services fee that may be charged under Section 54.503(b).
