UC regents approve operations budget

By From page A2 | November 15, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The University of California’s Board of Regents has approved a proposed budget for next school year that hinges on the state giving the system an additional $120 million for pension costs, enrollment growth and improvements to academic programs.

The Board of Regents passed the spending plan unanimously at their meeting in San Francisco on Thursday.

The plan would freeze undergraduate tuition, increase undergraduate enrollment by 2,200 students and provide a 3 percent salary raise for non-union UC employees.

Gov. Jerry Brown told regents he was doubtful the state Legislature would approve $120 million more in general state revenue above the 5 percent increase or about $146 million he has already offered.
