Troy did fall...or' Committee of Two-ing' 'til the May Revise?

What about higher ed, ed in general?

"Opaque Budgets"

The Committee of Two deal provides UC with an additional basic general fund allocation of $125.4. So that brings the basic general fund allocation for the coming year up to $3,260.5. And then in the coming year, as part of the deal, we get an additional $171.0 from the rainy-day fund bringing the total to $3,431.5. So far, so good.

But wait! We are supposed to get $436 (we're still in $millions) for the pension fund over three years. That would be $436/3 = $145.3 per year. That amount is more that the $122.0 said to come from the rainy-day fund during the current year. But it's less than the $171.0 for next year. Does that mean that in 2017-18, we get the remaining $143.0? ($436 - $122 - $171) Or are each year's contributions subject to negotiations?

So exactly what is UC getting from the state for what this year? Never mind media releases...

HuffPo: In the case, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a group of public-school teachers in California want the court to rule that the First Amendment prohibits their union from requiring them to pay what are known as "fair-share fees." Such fees, which all workers in a bargaining unit are obligated to pay, help cover the costs of maintaining union contracts.
