Waiting for leaks

John Myers writes a column in the LA Times about the behind-the-scenes, last-minute budget negotiations that go on around this time of year in Sacramento:

Few outside of Sacramento realize that some of the most important state budget decisions happen just before Christmas, in private meetings where the governor signs off on the spending plan he will present to the Legislature in early January...*

Sometimes - not always - bits and pieces of the state budget are leaked out, perhaps intentionally to see the reaction - or just leaked.

In any case, there is more money around currently than was forecast last June when the current budget was adopted. Whether UC will benefit from that circumstance is uncertain. But to the extent anything leaks, we'll try to keep on top.
