Higher Ed to be Cut Again Unless Ballot Measures Pass

Same goes for welfare, child care aid, and K-12, as announced by Gov. Jerry Brown at his press conference on his 2012-13 budget.

Although there is a net increase in general funds proposed for UC of about ~$300 M, a significant part of that (~$200 M) is simply moving the responsibility for repaying debt service directly to UC.

If the ballot measure fails to pass, a cut of $200 M is proposed for UC, which will result in a net loss (relative to the terrible 2011-12 budget).

And of course, this is nothing like the $411 M increase outlined in the budget approved by the Regents last November!
