California Gov. Jerry Brown enacted a spending plan today (June 27) that increases the University of California’s state appropriation by 5 percent in the coming fiscal year and sets the stage for modest growth in financial support over the subsequent three years.
The state will increase UC’s base funding by $142 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1, a boost that will allow undergraduate tuition to remain at current levels through 2013–14, said Patrick Lenz, UC’s vice president for budget and capital resources.
Lawmakers also approved a multi-year funding plan that grows UC’s base budget by 5 percent in the 2014–15 fiscal year, and by 4 percent in each of the two years after that.
