California Gov. Jerry Brown today (Jan. 10) proposed a state spending plan for the coming fiscal year that would provide a modest boost to the University of California’s operating budget for 2013-14.
The state legislature still must agree to the spending plan, usually a lengthy negotiation process that continues through spring. If enacted, the plan would restore $256.5 million of the $900 million cut from the university’s state funding over the past five years. The California State University system would receive a similar budget increase.
