Press Statement: Governor proposes additional 1.5 billion dollars for public higher education and outlines historic plan for improved quality and affordability

January 10th, 2013

We applaud Governor Brown on the new investments he proposes for California Community Colleges, California State University, and University of California totaling nearly 1.5 billion dollars. After years of devastating cuts to higher education, thanks to voter approval of Proposition 30 and the Governor’s leadership, higher education is on the mend and that is good for both students and our state.
