 1         (1)  There is created the Florida-Scripps Research

 2  Compact. The purpose of the compact is to explore facilitating

 3  and maximizing Florida's postsecondary collaboration with the

 4  Scripps Research Institute, including the feasibility and

 5  planning of a physical presence constituting a fully

 6  operational State of Florida-Scripps Research Campus over a

 7  multiyear phase-in. Such plans may include, but need not be

 8  limited to, the creation of research and graduate education

 9  facilities for faculty, support staff, and students of the

10  state universities, the state's historically black colleges

11  and universities, the University of Miami, and any other

12  accredited medical school in this state to collaborate with

13  the Scripps Research Institute; the acquisition of land,

14  facilities, and equipment; the potential for placement of a

15  research hospital on the campus; the placement of a

16  public-private research incubator on the campus; and any other

17  public-private partnerships and necessary physical resources

18  that would enhance the state's relationship with the Scripps

19  Research Institute. By December 31, 2004, the compact shall

20  submit a report to the Office of the Governor, the Senate, and

21  the House of Representatives outlining the potential and

22  feasibility of a Florida-Scripps Research Campus, including

23  plans for governance, operation, and phased-in budget.

 6  postsecondary institutions and the Scripps Research Institute.
