A Sunday cartoon and blurb asks in a different way-- What is the Governor gonna do with all those millions? asked again here in the SacBee

'Til then, there's:
Merced Sun Star Brown and Napolitano must put students first
Rethinking various support systems – from campus health care to marketing to the UC’s unnecessary role in approving high school curriculum – could yield significant savings. Beyond that, systems that aren’t working to students’ satisfaction (and there are several) could be put on the road to recovery.

If Napolitano makes a sincere effort, perhaps Brown could be convinced to put his considerable political capital behind a drive for excellence.

If they can’t, both will be responsible for dashing the long-held dream of a UC education for thousands of students just graduating from high school or ready to transfer from a community college. If those dreams die, don’t ask those students – or their parents – to support a university system that disappointed them. And most will blame Napolitano.


UT San Diego: More power ploys from UC's Napolitano

Brown plans a 4 percent increase in state funds for UC so long as there are no tuition hikes. He has the backing of the Legislature. The governor is only, say, 100 times more likely to prevail with his demands than Napolitano is with hers. And if the review of UC finances turns up the waste and lethargic management that many lawmakers expect, the UC president will lose what remaining credibility she has with state leaders.

Fresno Bee Editorial : Napolitano-Brown standoff persists, and students lose

then see Dan Walters: Brown, Walker wage similar funding battles

Brown is jousting with University of California President Janet Napolitano and many of his fellow UC regents by insisting that increases in the state's $3 billion-per-year commitment to the system be contingent on freezing tuition and making the system more cost-effective.

His rivals contend that Brown is being too stingy and breaching UC's traditional independence from political control. UC regents have voted to increase tuition if more state aid is not forthcoming, citing increasing costs of instruction — although the data cited by the university may be questionable.

and
The amount of state UC aid involved is relatively tiny and were it just about money, a compromise could be easily found. But the underlying issue is how much control governors and legislators should exert over university operations, given the system's constitutional independence, and that point is less susceptible to compromise.
