Does It Even Matter If The Gov. Signs Leg. On UC?

First, this:

Read the excerpt..

UC students, administrators come to preliminary agreement on tuition hike policy http://www.dailycal.org/2015/10/07/uc-students-administrators-come-to-preliminary-agreement-on-tuition-hike-policy/


Specifically, AB 970 — termed the “Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act” — called for a strict definition of “consultations” as meetings between university governing bodies and students in which the universities provide clear justifications for potential tuition hikes, and instructed universities to consult with students before such hikes are proposed.

“The process of increasing tuition and fees wasn’t democratic,” said Kevin Sabo, president of the UC Student Association.

Despite being passed and signed by Brown, the bill never took effect in the UC system, according to Sabo, who added that because the university is constitutionally autonomous, the bill would only become effective were it enacted by the UC regents.

Women faculty face bias at UCLA business school, study says http://www.latimes.com/local/education/la-me-ln-ucla-women-20151008-story.html

The share of women professors at Anderson has increased in recent years, from 16% in 2009 to what will be 23% later this school year with the arrival of a new hire, according to statistics provided by the school. Only 13% of the full professors are women, up from just 2% six years ago.

A survey by the Financial Times showed that many elite business schools have similar shares of women on faculty. It showed that Harvard has 25% and Columbia 17%, for example. But it also showed that UC Irvine and UC San Diego’s schools both have more than 40%.

He signed that bill related to a recent high profile Cal alum who was terminally ill mentioned earlier, and he signed the equal pay leg.-- but, even when the Gov. Signs off... UC constitutional tests abound?
