Jerry Brown’s budget plan will hold line on higher education spending

Gov. Jerry Brown plans to propose a $113.3 billion General Fund state budget Friday that holds fast in response to the University of California’s threat to raise tuition unless the state gives the university system more money. The budget Brown will release on Friday includes the same, modest annual funding increase – $120 million – that Brown has previously proposed for UC, on the condition that tuition remain flat, a source said.
