Dear Mr. Morris:                Civil Statutes.
We are in receipt of your letter in which you request
an opinion of this office as to whether the University of
Houston is legally required to grant to certain veterans
the right of exemption from payment of tuition fees and
charges in accordance with Article 2654b-1 of Vernon's
Annotated Civil Statutes (also known as the Hazelwood
Act).
Article 2654b-1 reads in part as follows:
Section 1. The governing boards of the
several institutions of collegiate rank, support-
ed in whole or in part by public funds appropriated
from the State Treasury, are hereby authorized and
directed to except and exempt all citizens of Texas,
who have resided in Texas for a period of not less
than twelve (12) months prior to the date of regis-
tration, and who served during the Spanish-American
and/or during the World War as nurses or in the
Armed Forces of the United States during the World
War and who are honorably discharged therefrom, and
who were bona fide legal residents of this State at
the time of entering such service, from the payment
of all dues, fees and charges whatsoever; . . .
