Day 1 at the Regents: Capital Projects

Today (Nov. 16) was the quiet day at the Regents. No issues of tuition, pensions, etc. A bunch of capital projects were approved. There was a bit of questioning about whether the state would pay for such projects, or even float general obligations bonds to pay for them. Of course, the answer was "no." An argument was made that UC needed to have shovel-ready projects in case someone did step up to pay for them. But that seems unlikely with the new and likely paralyzed Congress and the condition of the state budget. Nonetheless, there was little dissent.

You can hear audios in four parts of about 15 minutes each of the meeting belwo. (These are audios with a still picture.) There is an annoying buzz throughout these audios. Don't blame yours truly; I just recorded it as it was. But they are audible. (And I repeat the question of why, since the Regents live-stream the audio, they don't archive a recording.)
