Local Education Leaders Urge Governor to Sign State Budget Amendment; $50M to Go Toward CSU Maintenance Projects (0)
Following passage in the State Legislature, local education leaders are looking to Governor Jerry Brown to seal the deal on AB 1476, an amendment to the FY 2014-2015 State Budget Bill that includes an additional $50M in one-time appropriations for the California State University system.
When the University of California’s largest union and its administrators settled a two year contract dispute this spring, each side pledged to work with the other in promoting shared principles like urging state legislators to re-invest in higher education.

Oakland: The University of California’s largest union, AFSCME Local 3299, today hailed the State Legislature’s passage of AB 1476—an Amendment to the FY 2014-2015 State Budget Bill, which includes an additional $50 million in one time appropriations for the University of California.
