1. Prohibits DOA from requiring the Board of Regents to submit to DOA reports
on accounts receivable or moving expenses if substantially similar information is
included in other reports submitted by the Board of Regents or is accessible through
DOA's statewide accounting system.
2. Exempts the Board of Regents from submitting annual reports to the

erosion control and storm water management.

Sexual assault and harassment. The bill makes changes to requirements
for UW institutions to annually provide information to students about sexual assault
and sexual harassment, including the following: 1) requiring the information to
include university policies prohibiting sexual assault and harassment; and 2)
eliminating an annual report by the Board of Regents to the legislature on
compliance with the requirements. The bill also changes reporting requirements for
sexual assault and harassment. Under current law, an employee of a UW institution
who witnesses or receives a report that a student has been sexually assaulted must
make a report to the dean of the institution. The bill requires instead that a campus
security authority (CSA) must make the reports. The bill defines CSA to have the
same meaning as under a federal law known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of
Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Under the bill, if an
allegation that a sexual assault has occurred on or near campus is reported to a CSA
in his or her capacity as a CSA, the CSA must report the allegation to the institution's
dean or other appropriate official. The bill also requires the dean or other
appropriate official to compile the reports made by CSAs for the purpose of reporting
crime statistics as required under the federal law and eliminates a requirement for
UW institutions to make annual reports regarding sexual assaults to the
Department of Justice.
Energy cost reduction plans. The bill requires DOA to submit biennial plans
to JCF and the legislature on energy cost reduction for the following state agencies:
DOA, the Board of Regents, the Department of Corrections, the Department of
Health Services, the Department of Public Instruction, and the Department of
Veterans Affairs. Current law requires the state agencies themselves to submit the
