UC/CSUS REFORM BILLS VO/SOT

LIVE:

A STATE ASSEMBLYMAN WAS JOINED TODAY BY PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNION AND COLLEGE STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES, ASKING GOVERNOR SCHWARZENEGGER TO SIGN TWO BILLS HE SAYS WILL STOP EXORBITANT PAY INCREASES TO UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AND CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM EXECUTIVES.

SUPER: TODAY/ STATE CAPITOL

VO: (:30)

THE BILLS WERE WRITTEN IN RESPONSE TO PUBLISHED REPORTS INDICATING EXECUTIVES AT THE TWO UNIVERSITY SYSTEMS RECEIVED UNDISCLOSED PAY AND COMPENSATION PACKAGES. BOTH BILLS HAVE PASSED OUT OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE. THE BILL BY SENATOR LELAND YEE WOULD REQUIRE OPEN MEETINGS OF SALARY COMPENSATION COMMITTEES AT BOTH THE U-C AND C-SU SYSTEMS, AND REQUIRE PUBLIC NOTICE, AND ALLOW PUBLIC COMMENT AND ATTENDANCE AT U-C REGENT AND C-S-U TRUSTEE MEETINGS IN WHICH EXECUTIVE PAY INCREASES ARE GIVEN FINAL APPROVAL. ASSEMBLYMAN ANTHONY PORTANTINO'S BILL REQUIRES PUBLIC NOTICE OF ALL C-S-U EXECUTIVE SALARY AGREEMENTS.

SUPER: ASSEMBLYMAN ANTHONY PORTANTINO/D-PASADENA

VO TAG:

EDITOR'S NOTE: THE BILLS ARE SB 190 AND AB1413. SENATOR YEE WAS SCHEDULED TO ATTEND THIS MORNING' PRESS CONFERENCE, BUT WAS DELAYED IN TRAFFIC.
