CAL STATE OFFICIALS SAY "NO"; TUITION HIKES TEMPORARILY HALTED
CALIFORNIA -- Some good news from the C.S.U. system.
California State University officials say they will not be increasing tuition in the fall, even though Governor Brown's budget leaves them far short of the money needed to increase enrollment and pay for other critical operations.
Officials had requested $372 million for student programs, urgent maintenance, enrollment growth, and other services for the 2013-14 academic year.
The governor's proposal includes $125 million in additional funding, and that must still make it through budget negotiations with the legislature.
