UC Students Push for Regents to Support Prop 30 and Help Freeze Student Fees

At the UC Regents meeting yesterday, students and allies stressed the need for the Regents to stand with students and publicly support Governor Brown’s Tax Initiative, Prop 30. If passed, Prop 30 would buy-out all 2012-13 UC fee increases and freeze tuition for the upcoming school year by providing an additional $125 million to the UC. If the initiative fails, the UC will receive a $250 million trigger cut and also lose the $125 million tuition buyout.
