UC Regents Endorse Brown’s Funding Plan, but Look to Lawmakers for More

Jerry Brown’s budget proposal, which would significantly boost university funding, freeze in-state undergraduate tuition for two years, and require the 10-campus system to reform its pension plan and increase the number of transfer students it enrolls. But with no money in the plan to expand in-state undergraduate enrollment, officials said, they would be pressing lawmakers for extra funding.
