Too Sexy or Give It To Me Baby?

Cal Buzz--Too Sexy-- to be true: Sexy Story, That Youth Carried Prop. 30, is a Myth

Daily Cal details the Give It To Me Baby:

The board’s Committee on Grounds and Buildings approved the university’s 2013-14 Budget for State Capital Improvements, which requests $788.5 million from the state to fund 39 capital projects across the system.

If approved by the state legislature, approximately $432.7 million would go toward designing and constructing new academic facilities at various campuses while the other $355.8 million would be allocated to improving existing campus infrastructure and to projects addressing seismic-safety issues.

Since the economic crisis in 2008, state funding for university capital projects has slowed to a trickle, halting ongoing capital planning and causing a backup of incomplete construction projects. According to UC Vice President for Budget Patrick Lenz, campuses will have to find other sources of funding for their capital projects if state support remains insufficient.

and SF Chron told us: "the regents are not expected to delay voting on a budget proposal for next year that includes a provision to raise tuition across UC unless the state allocates $126.5 million in 2013-14 on top of other expected increases from the state."

PS Chico State's party rep used to be a running joke, but it isn't funny anymore- and points to some real pain going on in students lives.
