Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee Approves Same Funding as Proposed by Governor

May 27, 2010

From the CSU Chancellor's Office

Following yesterday’s approval by the Assembly Budget subcommittee for full funding of Governor Schwarzenegger’s May budget proposal for the California State University, the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee today approved the same level of funding.

“We are very appreciative of the Senate’s actions today, and want to commend them for making funding for the CSU a priority in their budget plans,” said CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed. “As we move forward, this will allow us to offer more students a place at one of our campuses, and contribute to the well educated workforce of the future.”

The Governor included $305 million above current year funding for the CSU in his May budget proposal, restoring one-time cuts in the current year. The budget proposal restores another $60.6 million for additional enrollment support.

“We recognize there are still tough decisions to be made, but we are gratified by today’s action in the Senate, and look forward to working collaboratively with the Legislature and Governor to secure a budget that reinvests in higher education for California,” added Reed.
