Update:Video- CA Gov. Brown's May Revise on CA Budget Press Conference

"Gov. Jerry Brown's latest budget proposal calls for spending more on the state's colleges and universities each year through 2016-17 -- and for a 4-year tuition freeze at CSU and UC."
"A brief statement by the UC's budget chief, Patrick Lenz, noted the proposed investment by the state over time -- 4 to 5 percent per year, though 2016 -- and then asked for more: "UC will continue working with the governor and the Legislature to address critical funding needs, such as a $15 million budget augmentation for the UC Riverside School of Medicine, a capital facilities funding plan to provide student access and address seismic retrofit, and funding for the state's employer retirement contribution."
"The budget plan would give the state's community colleges 30.7 percent more, an extra $1,503, to spend per student by 2017 than it did in 2012, according to a summary document provided by the governor's office. California State University would receive a 33 percent increase during that time -- an additional $1,900 per student -- and the University of California would get 23.4 percent more, about $2,500."
