Tobacco, Oil, ...Wine

the UC regents were very enthusiastic about a tobacco tax at the last regent meetings last week. Other parts of the UC system are talking about an oil tax. This latest report on wine and much much more also reminds us of other comments we've seen about a wine tax to pay for CA higher ed. -- it sets folks off...pitting different parts of CA industries against UC.

why don't the UC regents ever talk about joining with the Governor or other legislators on broad non industry specific items like these?

why are they are only too happy to talk piecemeal- like the items mentioned above?
