There is Money to Be Had

As the headline indicates, there is money to be had in Sacramento this budget round. The governor will soon unveil his May Revise budget, but is leaking out some of the juicier elements in advance. Presumably, UC has already put in its ask. But given the flood of money around this year - something unlikely to repeat next year - as it works with the legislature, UC should not be modest.

The Regents start their meetings today. As usual, yours truly will preserve the recordings. It will take some time, however, to go through the various sessions. But there should be discussion of the state budget and the UC budget request as part of the meetings.

Note (below) that student groups will not be modest in their asks. What starts in Santa Barbara may spread to other campuses. You might even hear about such demands at the public comments portions of the Regents meetings.
