Plan would freeze UC, CSU fees if voters pass tax

Plan would freeze UC, CSU fees if voters pass tax

SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders have come up with a plan to freeze tuition rates at California's public universities if voters approve a tax hike in November.

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Monday that lawmakers will move a budget-related bill that appropriates an extra $125 million each for University of California and California State University in the 2013-14 academic year.

The money will be made available to the UC system if the board agrees not to increase fees this year. The CSU would have to rescind a $500 increase that is going into effect this fall.

Brown and Democratic lawmakers are relying on taxes to balance much of the state's $15.7 billion shortfall. The measure would raise the sales tax statewide and income taxes on high earners.

Sharon Ito's blog: Congressional candidate Ami Bera's turn

Sharon Ito's blog: Democratic congressional candidate Dr. Ami Bera brought a congenial style to his studio interview on News10 at 9 a.m., though the last campaign with Republican incumbent Dan Lungren was a bruiser.

The way Lungren remembered it when he was our show the week before, Bera's campaign was "mostly attacks." Bera told us there were "attacks on both sides," but like Lungren he wants a higher level of dialogue this time around. Maybe when the men debate on our show in the coming months, we'll see a civil exchange. Their ad campaigns may be a different story.

This is a high profile and highly competitive race; both parties are heavily invested in this election since it could change the balance of power in the House. The 7th Congressional District has been redrawn and includes a greater swath of Elk Grove, and as a result leans more independent and democratic.
