He said/She said

Apparently, on a news conference to be aired later today, UC prez Napolitano is saying she can find no evidence that there ever was a deal with the governor to freeze tuition for a multi-year period in exchange for state funding increases.  The governor thinks there was.

There in fact never was a deal in the sense of a written compact.  What happened was that the governor made a proposal and the regents went along with it.  But they went along only on a year-by-year basis, not raising tuition and getting what the governor offered.

You can read about, and later today (yours truly is on the east coast so the news conference has not yet aired at this writing) hear the broadcast.  There are some advance excerpts at the link below.
