The Governor’s Higher Education Budget

On January 9, the Governor presented a budget with a proposed $2.3 billion reserve at the end of 2014-15. The Governor's budget seeks to address some of California's biggest budget issues.  His higher Education Budget provides $20 billion in Core Funding for Higher Education and estimates that local property tax revenue will be up $94 million (4 percent) from the current-year. Student fee revenue is budgeted to increase $13 million (3 percent) due to enrollment growth. The Governor’s major proposed augmentations for higher education are: base increases at the universities, increases in apportionment funding and two categorical programs at the community colleges, Cal Grants growth, and implementation of the new Middle Class Scholarship program.
